i am curious as to what anthony means when he says borrowed. I could use some less flattering words, but i wont. Why, becuase if you dont have any concepts (ideas) about architecture, or more importantly life, you may be "borrowing" others instead of developing your own.
IF you want examples of conceptual architecture, look at these, Ginza Pyramids, The Pantheon, Parthenon. Not only are they technological marvels, they also embody a society (or at least the elite's) Ideas about civilization, and the universe. Dont ever let anyone tell you that architecture is not the most expressive art in the world. People dont know where the world is without it. Think about any culture, and you think of its buildings, weather currrent or not, They embodied the knowledge and hope of that civilization. The WTC is still an example today. Mind you know that we live in a "democracy" though.
