I wasn't being hostile to new developments, because that isn't new.
Thats why i suggested looking at the web of north holland by Kas Oosterhuis as it was constructed using a file to factory process. A 3-d model made in Rhino was used by the steel manufacturers to make all the components which were then welded together.
But the frame of course has to be looked at by an engineer to make sure it is structurally sound, just making a computer model of it and saying 'this is it' as you are suggesting doesn't work.
You gave no indication of what the materials were or how it would be constructed that was what i was saying, i was offering you the chance to explain it PROPERLY.
You said at the end of your message that why should new developments look like what already exists. Yes!! that was my point to you. The model you showed has a regular pitched roof like any po-mo building going up right now all over the world, why would you develop a new construction system for something that is already satisfactory and out of date?
All I wanted to point out is that fancy computer images are not enough its needs much much more explanation and exploration into the practical nature of it.
