We are architecture's lost generation

We are architecture's lost generation; raised by Rhino-Max baboons of the 90s. Baboons teaching more Rhino-Max monkeys. Monkey see monkey do. We are architecture's generation that reproduces rather than produces; cursed by perpetual remakes and sequels. More and more form, more and more complex geometry. In the fucked-up world that architecture operates in, all that is of concern for the most avant-garde schools is how do we generate and build these complex surfaces in the most efficient and cost effective way. What the architectural world inherits is a bunch of amnesiac mouse-clicking monkeys. More and more form: my geometry is more complex than

We are architecture's lost generation. Technologically savvy, ideologically impoverished.

I couldn't agree with you more. I find most of my colleagues are clueless about the way the world works. You describe exactly: lots of clever form-making with the computer, little thought as to why they make such forms. It's depressing to find out how little my colleagues can share about what they know. Doctrine has indeed left the discipline of architecture, maybe because the last time it was important (the Modernists) results caused more harm than good. Still, design without some underlying theoretical system causes buildings to be intriguing and powerless at the same time.

PS: Thanks for linking to my site, and I'll link to your post on the architecture carnival.

Well, Tyler, I'm just a grad student, and in interior design to boot, so I don't know what life is like out there as an architect, but my general approach to life is if something's not working, fix it. What solutions do you propose to resolve the issues you raise?

Take a look at my website. I try to add some answers to my questions, even if I risk sounding naive.

Don't blame Rhino. It's just a tool. But your point is well taken.
