This is from a review of the film "Brazil":
"It seems that our future soon will be heating and air-conditioning ducts. Your walls will be filled with them like human intestines. Don't cut open the walls or the guts will spill onto the floor.
Forget those LANs, you need pneumatic tubes. And that big monitor on your personal computer, get rid of it too. The future is an old typewriter hooked to a six inch TV screen made to look bigger by putting a magnifying screen in front of it. Yes, welcome to the wonderful world Terry Gilliam (TWELVE MONKEYS, THE FISHER KING, and the MONTY PYTHON films) created in 1985 and called simply BRAZIL."
That, with Blade Runner and Metropolis, are where you think that you can get ideas about architecture and urban design ?
Diseased notions to create an environment of alienation.
Why not get up off the couch and actually go and look at a real city - and see why some cities work; why some of them are actually decent places - if you choose not to then ponder the reality that sociopaths make bad urban designers.
