Yes, we see studio presentations where the dazzling computer graphics really get in the way of the real architectural issues. It's often difficult to penetrate the surface glitz (which may be the students' intention, I suppose).
I'm reminded of the last days of the Beaux Arts Institute, when schools vied in competition with each other to win prizes for smashing renderings. The process escalated to the point where stunning presentation was the main objective, and in the effort to gain recognition for the school, faculty began to assist students in rendering incredible submissions. The whole thing collapsed at that point of overkill.
Maybe we're reaching that point of overkill with these huge, intricate computerized presentations. I'm not seduced. Less is More.
