Re: Re: Design Conceptualisation: The Rise of CAD
Sorry garethace- I still don’t see what your 30th Oct post has to do with the quote of mine you highlighted. Seems like you were just using it as a springboard for a tenuously related soliloquy (not unrelated to this thread, but unrelated to my post).
I had a look at those two Cyburbia threads, and their conclusion seemed to be that they are happy with the available technology as long as it allows them to get their message across. They see no need for separate cg artists as the artists are too expensive and ultimately unnecessary. But it has nothing to do with the point I was making about removing the task from the developer’s advocates (architects or planning consultants), in the interest of objectivity. I still think the task should be done by a person/company not paid for by the developer. All about ‘He who pays the piper calls the tune” (or whatever the phrase is).
Also, the threads seem to use the word ‘planner’ to refer to urban designers. Not the case in this country.
EDIT: You seemed to comprehensively re-write your post while I was responding to it. Now I’m not sure if my reply makes sense. It did make sense originally, I promise. 🙂
