what is our current architectural style called

Architecture style is no longer defined by space, rather by time.
"Their house is the epitome of 2002 style."
"Design me something early 1840s. I'm feeling immediate-post-Schinkel lately."
"In the year 2525, when architecture is finally alive..."

It appears that the title should actually be An Architecture of Being Virtual because that title is exactly what [the] work represents. ...letters that are to be included in AAOBV, such as the skins analogy/question, delivery of content, facilitators, etc., virtual TV stations/channels. ...more collage than traditional exposition/display. ...one that comprises actual product placement while also "theorizing" about the new role of publicity in architecture. I know I'm 'playing' a bit here, but I also think I'm making a significant point about the 'hybrid' nature of cyberspace in general, and the ever morphing nature of the hybrid [architecture] specifically. ...we were part of a international conference on hybrid architectures. The conference is so hybrid that the participants don't even know (till now) that they composed a larger composite entity.

[2007] "In the future, your whole life will be a phone call." [Gosh, that now reminds me of Her.]

...and get that great new book on the workings of inspiration. I'm pretty sure it's called Even You Can Be A Copy Cat. Be careful of your use of the concept "create" in this context. Tools in and of themselves are incapable of creation; they facilitate dexterity and hence creation, however. Technologies and architecture are creations, and their own creative powers remain (forever) overshadowed by humanity's far superior creative powers. Your musings are thus incomplete without the inclusion of humanity's vast physical and imaginative capabilities. In terms of creativity, you must always remember the hand and the mind. JJM states: It seems more than obvious that the tools we use influence the way we think. SL replies: It may not seems so obvious, but it is probably more true that the way we think influences the way we use tools. ...wondered what the Latin word for idea was, and thus found notitia, notitiae. Interestingly, the first meaning of notitia is fame (as in notoriety) while idea, knowledge of, concept, notion are the second meanings.

[2005] I've been thinking about sculpture lately, at least virtually.





I'd now like a house in the all-of-the-above style.
