    An Incomplete Poem For Brief Synopsis Of New Currency in Architecture

    Has the poor become so unbearable that the haves don't want them around anymore? Sure, there is a tiny percentage of low-income units required in the permitting process, but not even close to dodge housing crisis and provide something for the thousands spread around the city living in cardboard boxes, and now, in tents. Semi-homeless living in extended stay hotels.

    Then, the heads barely under a roof working class residents with low paying jobs.

    As we go up gradually, we have, young professional class driving up the market for the real estate industry of agents, loan specialists, with built in and profit driven socio-cultural terminologies like house flippers, lifestyle factor, wall to wall glass,  etc.

    Urban design went what Dwelldesign did for stylish homes and produced crass developments, cities went thriving and boosted, went gentrified, went art districts, etc.

    Architecture went phenomenological as if it was not before, renderings went shiny and everything, then it went back to basic and not shiny again. Then there were, 10 best, 15 best, best best and stuff without stopping. The innovation, design leading, and design thinking went convenience mall style, etc.

    Digital drawings made curvy things including kitchen cabinetry while hand drawing became manhood in a boxy world.

    A lot of panel discussions on who votes for whom and for which job opportunity. And not much else. New theories in old regimes, all the same. No changes other than the new printed items and those really don’t matter.

      1. a system of money in general use in a particular country.

      2. the fact or quality of being generally accepted or in use.


      All you need to get is #2, hard to miss it.
