I love when a design spark some critic, and you are quite right that this suggestion about how to build a train station as a row of almost identical frames , shuld be refined so the canopy is not that thick.
------ But as you know my intention have never been, to show the perfect design. This never been my attitude as I do not belive in the idear of the master architect ; it's a dead-end in terms of just everything , just emagine Tupperware being designed by not just one but a group of skilled designers, ----- So realy I think the main issue, the building method, or rather the promoting of that will not gain from me designing to well.
Anyway the 70' things you still se today , a bit more complicated even somtimes with a bit to many edges and mashin like. But to compensate for ineffective materials or methods, architects visualise several layers of strings and wires ontop lattrices of rough steel plates ,acturly doing the job four times as expensive and truely over designed ------ even this is difficult to se.
Reson I produced this design is this ;
That I would say reflect the 70' far more than what I suggested ;
Guess you se the point ; I am promoting a revolution , this is not as easy as you think.
