I wouldn't describe nice housed as somthing being a product of a dog, ------ acturly I find the houses and the architecture promoted by modern 2D architect applications to neat, to much looking as a reklame for an ideal like you se in adverts for different modern religions or goods.
This "2D" aproach I find is vorse than any uneducated bid, any short sighted idear of just giving the client what you tell the client he want, as when tide turn you need the clients support of what the client think he put in it himself , ------ but isn't today's architect applications just a reflection about all what is "wrong" ; the way this software make you think this is cutting edge, where it's just the old method run faster and more accurate in a database ?
I think you need to tell about some obvious gains from the clients point of view, to be able to change any of this. As othervise this discussion just make architects even more unpopular ; you need to tell about the Visions in producing quality ,rather than calling peoples homes dog shit ------- doing so I don't think you progress an academic aproach about beauty ;))
Even the man is right , architects rather show some alternatives like cheaper houses, stronger houses or houses that acturly take advanteage of today's technology, instead of supporting the technology avaible 80 years ago it is maby even possible to find enough young people who want more than a charming Plywood box.
They maby even support a new aproach and a vision about new jobs, and true new technology, maby it need solid arguments like lower cost, to sell more foreproven or stronger houses, but you must agrea that when such qualities only make a house more expensive being a refinment of tradisional methods, maby new Digital building methods could offer the flexibility lost in Lego-Thinking.
Now if this guy realy want some change, why not ask how you can expect anything new coming from putting all the known technikes into computer code , ------ this don't bring any new ,only the old running faster, bringing a promise of greater profit for the architects.
