    It's fun to identify the computer generated environment while you're in it & pretend to be in virtual reality, and then try and spot the odd logic gaps in spaces which have been architected on screens, sometimes you can catch a dodgy cut'n'paste transposed onto reality.
    These cityscapes resemble computer renderings cos that's what they are, i suppose, just in the medium of bricks and mortar (or flatpack or whatever).

    Is there something about Mexico city that makes it amazingly photogenic from the air though??

    interesting point sufi.

    in a similar vein i'm always intrigued to notice shapes in car design which are a function of software tools. and as a historical flourish i should add that the "bezier" tool for defining curves was designed by monsieur bezier to help him specify the curves of the renault cars he was designing
