Triumph of image over content
There are two images published in today's Building Design ( tried to post them but can't unfortunately) which confirm to me that what an architect really needs is a great computer graphics system and that's it.
One is a Ridley Scott image of a "Discovery Centre" in Kent by Austin Smith Lord, absolutely seemless, polished and meticulous like a fucking space ship and impossible to build as such in my opinion, the other is a covered ski slope in Suffolk.
Which reminds me, whatever happed to Sonhetta and Spence's polished, immaculate pebble which took the Turner Centre in Margate Comp. To my mind another impossible technical feat.
Was it ever built, does anyone know?
