Re: Demo-Design
The world's largest building implosion to date occurred 30 October 1994 at the Sears complex in the Northeast section of Philadelphia, a site which is incidentally mere blocks from the origin point of Quondam - A Virtual Museum of Architecture.

Re: def: AutoCAD Architecture
With regard to "flatness", take a look at Louis Kahn's first independent building commission - Ahavath Israel Synagogue, Philadelphia, 1935. My point being that "flatness" is an architectural aesthetic with a long history and very much independent of CAD. There are also some Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates buildings that absolutley revel in their flatness, e.g., any of the 1980s and 1990s university laboratory buildings. I also suggest you read you read Tom Wolfe's The Painted Word, within which you will find an analysis of the flatness of 1960s POP art.

aesthetics of war design
What I realized while viewing through some of the [destruction] images is that I could take pictures walking around my own neighborhood of Olney in urban Philadelphia, USA, and they would be very similar to those of Kosovo today. Of course, what's going on in Kosovo now is extremely upsetting, but what's equally upsetting is that destruction is not just going on there but in many, many places on this planet.
Perhaps the aesthetic of war design is more prevalent than we most times realize.

topological office buildings - high-rise blocks
...high-rise buildings where topological surfaces become the "front" and "backs" of building blocks, and the sides are simply the resulting profiles. ...uniform grids, which will come to represent modules for floor lines and for glazing units. ...apply the resultant designs within the Center City Philadelphia model.

Ottopia, etc.
...begin composing Ottopia with the houses for Otto distributed upon a collage of mesh surfaces; from there begin modeling of the Otto houses. Given the strange terrain, hopefully the house designs readily develop in schizophrenic ways, plus "otherwise" architectural ways. ...envisioning a use of mesh surfaces for other design features such as roofs and additional landscapes.
The greatest challenge will be to actually design a schizophrenic environment. For starters, lots of repetition and places vast distances apart come to mind... ...not at all sure whether a Piranesian (a la Campo Marzio) Ichnographia narrative will become part of Ottopia's plan.
...introducing mesh surfaces among pieces (sections) of the Philadelphia model, and thereafter redesigning a new metropolis. This Philadelphia manipulation could be part of Ottopia... ...Ottopia can be any number of built environment landscapes, and not just a "meshland"...
