infringement complex
...a significant leap regarding the composing of metabolic buildings by collaging existing models. ...used Capital Park West... ...the resultant collage is fine, it was actually the process of creation/design that is more significant.
...underlayed the Palais des Congrès site plan to create a context. ...needed more underlay so then copy enlarged and rotated the site plan, and in cleaning up that plan real design possibilities came to the fore... There is every potential of creating Ottopia in this manner. ...immediately wanted to create a 3D base model for the collage complex.
...changing the elevations--just apply any number of other building elevations, or any other designs, e.g., the patterns.

infringement complex 2, etc.
...incorporate the same model but change the scale of each building (which may involve moving the buildings around as well). ...also altering the elevations using a number of techniques including ri patterning, applying perspectives from infringement complex 1, applying elevations from the group elevations. A third complex could have Campo Marzio plans as the elevations.

an alter-ego for Quondam
...utilizes the same collection and themes as Quondam, but nonetheless affords Quondam a "place" to be much more liberal, uninhibited...

[architecture as interface comes with the architecture of schizophrenic interfacing...]
[buildings constantly move, doors can be windows, windows can be doors, stairs to Pilate are climbed annually on knees, walls may soon all talk, floors will mostly remain flat, ceilings with sprinklers are virtual skies that harbor emergency rain, roofs probably more than anything manifest architecture's shape, lights, camera, Africa, machines to create architecture with, furniture and painting as one, utilities that never fail (sic), plants, of course, grass gets high, sidewalk, siderun, sidecrawl, sidesit, sideroll-over, driveway complete with Jeep, garage sale as museum,..]

architecture in cyberspace?
First, I said, "I'd hate to see the virtual merely become a reflection of the real." This means I'd hate to see architects/designers/theorists neglect an investigation of the inherent qualities of the virtual/cyber realm, where they can find virtual/cyber's own "natural" order. For example, one huge difference between architecture in the real world and architecture in cyberspace is that in cyberspace actual buildings are redundant, indeed a real auction house that does what eBay does couldn't even be built. Another difference between real architecture and cyber architecture is that one goes to real architecture whereas cyber architecture comes to you. It may simply be that "real" architects have to begin also thinking about what it means to design architectures that go to people.
On a personal level, I like that is a museum of architecture that is not a building, and, moreover, a museum of architecture that goes all over our planet.
Perhaps the purest architectures of cyberspace are precisely those architectures that can't be built [except in cyberspace].
