Can good art also have utility? These are a few polemics posed in the <em>Sydney Morning Herald</em> by columnist Elizabeth Farrelly, reacting to <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/74569799/sou-fujimoto-s-serpentine-gallery-pavilion-opens-june-8th-first-photos-by-iwan-baan-emerge" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Sou Fujimoto's&nbsp;</a><a href="http://www.serpentinegallery.org/2013/02/sou_fujimoto_to_design_serpentine_gallery_pavilion_2013.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Serpentine Gallery</a><a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/74569799/sou-fujimoto-s-serpentine-gallery-pavilion-opens-june-8th-first-photos-by-iwan-baan-emerge" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">&nbsp;Pavilion</a>, featured <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/74569799/sou-fujimoto-s-serpentine-gallery-pavilion-opens-june-8th-first-photos-by-iwan-baan-emerge" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here on Archinect</a>&nbsp;this past June.</p> <p> These questions have been posed for ages, but as human interaction shifts further into the digital realm, artists and architects have had to adapt to the changing atmosphere of interactivity while also representing it. As Farrelly puts it, "I'd trade all climbability for more beauty and subtlety, any day.&nbsp;Mountains are for climbing. Art should take you somewhere high, airy and new".
