the art of ecology
One of the problematic aspects of the Internet era in terms of architecture is the sharp
transition from content to image. It began with the saying “one picture is worth a thousand
words”, passing to “one YouTube video is worth a thousand pictures”, while everyone
knows that one encounter with reality is often worth more than a thousand YouTube videos.
Much has been said about content that gets lost behind misconceiving, beautiful computerdesigned envelopes (AI# 94) in buildings that don’t always take into account the envelope’s impact on the interior. And when it does, the single-parametric effect takes over a variety of multi-parametric user requirements, most of which don’t necessarily have a visual image.
