Re: Re: Pastiche – The Final Solution?
I have just read through the entire thread and found it very interesting.
I think that common sense will often dictate where facade retention (or pastiche) is appropriate. I do not see either term as pejorative.
The issue of ‘experts’ designing for experts interests me i.e. the idea that the preference of the general public is not important (except as something which should be changed – presumably by (re)education?).
Do I perceive a ‘collegiality’ in the forum – a (cosy?) consensus? An assumed superiority even? (or is it just that I’m from the northside) 😀
