A weak aproach, a sad comment -- but who wonder ; today's computer programs will NOT make the new architecture and in particular not produce the cheap safe houses. For that yon need engagement and a true vision, you need a reson to make it better a real reson to feed a true vision, and joining this without ever speaking about beauty without talking about a revolution tell the end of the tale before the begining.
if anyone "regretfully withdraws" over weak "offenses" like THOSE, architecture isn't the right field for them.
pack up and move on, "brad." or go to architecture school, get your a-- kicked, and come out with the ability to distinguish an "offense" from a discussion with people who are just not willing to kiss your fine a-- (unless it's in bed).
C'mon Brad. You need to learn more about this profession before you can pass judgement. Not everyone's definition of Architecture is the same as yours, and most people come here to vent, joke (about others), as well as engage in research and discussion.
If Architects wore their turtlenecks, talked uber-serious about meaningfull worldly issues 24hrs a day, we'd be cliincal.
I bet Frank, Rem, and Winy all crack stupid jokes, and laugh at farts too.
Step back up, and don't let these things shatter your vision of what Architecture could be. We all have our own.
