I too was thinking of McMansions last night. Swarms of clones sprawling over the US suburban landscape. But notice too what these homes try so hard to reenact, essentially the 'lifestyle' of very wealthy people from quondam times.
...it's interesting that the German word Schloß means 1. castle, palace; chateau, manor-house     2. lock.

I can well see that scripting is an advancement in drawing dexterity with the aim of an advancement in production, but it's not altogether evident that scripting is an advancement in architecture.
Does scripting really generate a more enlightened, more liberal architecture?
For example, does scripting engender an architecture of maximum individual freedom? Does scripting engender an open-minded architecture or a more tolerant architecture?
Or does scripting really (only) come to engender a new style of architecture?

Perhaps there is always somewhat of a divide between 'History' (written, taught and then regurgitated) and what all actually happened. The Pritzker Prize falls in the category of 'History' and at a divide from all that actually happened. For me personally, the Prize is not at all the point, pointless really; I'm much more interested in learning what all actually happened.
In a most ironic way, Scott Brown is apt to receive much more attention by not getting formal recognition from the Pritzker. Does she herself even realize that she's been wearing the ruby slippers all along?
Checking the Zeitgeist, it's just about time for Scott Brown to write The Autobiography of Robert Venturi (just like Gertrude Stein wrote The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas). I, for one, would love to read about a ground-breaking 20th century designer, a real architect's architect, and his marriage to a staunch theory-into-practice colleague.

I can understand the notion of "So to compete with another firm I could presumably throw in the 3D for free and match other firms fee with more services" but shouldn't additional services add to the worth of what the architect offers. The type of competitive logic you describe actually makes architectural services worth less; it devalues architectural services. If you're giving the client more, then the client should pay more.
I also understand that this 'competitive logic' is not black or white, that indeed the new tools at the architect's disposal are changing the equation of services offered, but I think it's also important to try to equate the new services with a higher value. This may tie in directly with the notion of "clients don’t take you seriously until it costs them real money."
