How can you be surprised about a public oppinion being the result of two years of simply knowing the lack of Vision.
Where are that drive , somwhere hidden in the process you shuld know behind the Sydney opera. How can you occupy the public mind when the drive is not there and the .
How can it be so difficult when all possibilities are there, maby it is becaurse architecture in it's most advanced form became boring Lego-Thinking or spetakular wannabe surface thinking , omitting the chance for the architect to become an artist, by investigating the new "materials" , -------- maby not even the architects realise , that nothing new will come from putting all the old methods into a fancy new architect application.
Why is it that the public don't belive, could it be the lack of visions great enough, to make the ansver that will bring jobs and a number of "products" such as new building technikes and way's to build structures , instead of the 20 year old ones architects still today, think is top trend.
From my point of view, it's a long time ago that Sydney showed the refreshing attitude , that becaurse of concrete head and steel boxwork achitecture lost it's attitude about even beauty.
You want a public back-up, then make sure somthing nice is build, not somthing ugly.
Silence is your voice my friend, it show a mind that cry, but you can break the chains of mind, leave it all behind and once again be the man you want to be.
But not with Lego-Thinking and architects that is generations behind how the education system work today, where any student know more about the computer than Liebskinds. And still you think you get a public back-up with that attitude ; I tell you when build it will disapear in the building mass , it is already to small and have no Vision attached to it, not in terms of architecture and vasted space and not in terms of develobing new building technikes.
