    Been around there many times

    It's a horrible excuse for a park

    The swimming pool is a cool design

    I actually like stratford - all those skyscrapers jutting out against the skyline

    I like to walk around there stoned imagining I'm in the nascent stage of blade runner

    stratford is the future. do you know the old shopping centre? where teenagers on rollerblades leap over the sleeping bodies of homeless Romanians? there's nowhere remotely as futurisitc as stratford.

    the most disorientating thing is that they have their own android population of very young, wealthy, physically attractive residents from a clone lab somewhere. playing table tennis shirtless, muscles rippling, baseball caps on backwards, high-5ing each other. who are these people?

    OK so what of this in melbs and this nonsense in london victoria (it's crap design features are a bit "subtle")?
    overlaying images on the structural designs that likely would not have been doable without a lot of manual drafting, but made some nice and groovy visual effect with just a moment of clicky clck
    Not sure if those are CAD trying to soften or humanise itself with a sort of sense of humour or history perhaps, or ...?

    makes a much better job of having a bit of a laugh, while still being too boggling to have existed without electronic visualisation

    sports shoes, mobile phones and motor vehicles are all melting into a single nasty design strategy as implemented in every direction from old st roundabout omphalos

    yes. ive picked out a strand and emphasised it (sleek, frictionless, opaque, monochrome or primary colours) but it leaves things out. some of those things are botches and half-measures and not worth thinking about (drum and bass with real instruments)
    but youve pointed to something which is worth poking and prodding at.

    things that only become feasible (in terms of the maths etc) with computers. a lot of starchtiect stuff. zaha hadid etc
