Try reading the first three chapters of Egyptian Architecture as Cultural Expression by Earl Baldwin Smith (1938).

Yes, I too wish architects better understood the distinctions between the virtual and the real. Understanding the distinctions makes for a better understanding of both realities.

the environmental tipping point?
After reading the article this morning, I thought that what the Bush administration is doing is really not all the different in what architectural academia sometimes does, that is, disregard knowledge that they can't control, especially knowledge that sometimes shows architectural academia at fault. Thank God for the Internet and self-publishing, right?
Gosh, I even sometimes see that same type of behavior within architectural discussion boards. Go figure.

"And the Lifetime Achievement Award for the Most Non-Indigenous Architecture Anywhere goes to..."

Ah, the Khrushchev finally visits Disneyland style.
Overall, I think it's not Russian enough, but, who knows, maybe it's the Russians that are behind global warming, because they may well profit from it.
Bombs do not choose. They will hit everything.
