i had a few friends who graduated from columbia graduate school a few years ago with nothing but blobs in their portfolio. they even did a small "pavilion" at ps1/moma which was well received. i think that as the technology to conceive and eventually construct amorphous blobs develops, we're going to see blob designs mature and become more integrated rather than be one-off showpieces. i enjoy seeing them as demonstrations of being able to push limits and push buttons.
as our culture chews up and spits out a new fad every year or so (backstreet who?), it's easy to see how people have already tired of blob architecture. i think it's important to see how it develops. i mean, some people tired of zaha hadid's theoretical work pretty quickly, but then she started building. today, she's not considered fashionable anymore, but legitimately talented. (just don't get me started about gehry)
