worth holding your breath for....Towards a Squeezed-Out Architecture

a must for all clients:Does Your Architect Wear Boxers or Blobs?
Exponential Potential Architecture1. Architecture plus Weaponization2. Architecture minus Weaponization3. Architecture times Weaponization4. Architecture divided by Weaponization5. Architecture greater than Weaponization6. Architecture less than Weaponization7. Architecture to the power of Weaponization8. the Weaponization root of Architecture
A few questions:How exactly are we so sure that curves mimic nature's process?
What exactly is the good reason for architectural design to mimic nature's (so-called) process via the use of curves?
What exactly makes an architectural design that mimics nature's (so-called) process via the use of curves ethical?
Does the use of curves in architectural design somehow reduce or prevent (all) architecture's (inevitable) entropy?
Or will we find out that the use of curves in architectural design will speed-up said architecture's entropy?
Finished reading Log 28 this morning--been reading it since last Thursday. Also been thinking of starting a thread about it--Stocktaking 2013. In any case, there are many passages worth remembering and even discussing. For example (and off the top of my head), Kipnis saying very similar things vis-a-vis (a comparing of) Gehry and Schinkel; PVA lamenting 'destruction' via tweets, Lynn now working in 'isolation', Diller meeting a non-architect that took Venturi's history class and said it was the best course he ever took; AZP's personal CAD history; what Whiting described as 'evil'; etc. There's also the almost invisible veil of fear that postmodernism may not be dead.
