Cut the Crap

The automobile, the airplane, the computer, the walkman, the internet, the cell phone, facebook, twitter, … Mass globalization has rapidly shrunk the world to the size of our palm. Time and space have become irrelevant. The digital, on the other hand, seems to be very real. Write a sentence, press a single button and your thoughts and emotions are going around the world, public, for everybody to see. It is the age of the voyeur and the voluntary stalked. A big brother society we chose to live in. It’s also a time of public fear, terrorism, crisis, climate change, … A catastrophe seems inevitable and maybe it even is. In these times architecture has become an almost ancient profession. Instead of architecture we now settle down with the live action building of renders made by, what we like to call, “Star Architects”.
