Sorting out truth
I don't know how metaphysical it is to see an architectural design from the past and then, as a designer, wish to somehow capture the essence of the former design in a whole new design, but I do know that many designers are very protective of their "inspirations" only because they already know how easy it is to "copy" secretly while at the same time manifesting one's own originality publicly.
Haven't we already seen in our own time just how hypocritical "value" and "truth" are? I am now much more interested in trying to understand the ways and means of hypocrisy than I am interested in trying to understand the hierarchy of "value" and "truth". The presence of hypocrisy appears much more real than the presence of value and truth.

Again, it is abundantly clear to me that architecture today is extremely diverse. Moreover, a thorough view of complete global architectural history records an abundance of contemporaneous architectural diversity. The diversity of architecture[s] today far exceeds any coherence of architecture today.
I see the reality of diversity in architecture today for what it is, namely a reality. For Paul to infer that I am 'celebrating' diversity is just plain wrong because I am more correctly seeing what is self evident.

...when Plato was teaching at his academy, its seems that he made pretty good use of the overtly reenacting (Socratic) dialogues teaching method.

Although artificial generally means 'made by humans', the extended definition 'produced rather than natural' suggests the ant mounds pictured below (or whatever they are exactly) are more, strictly speaking, something artificial, that is, something produced rather than natural. If you asked me, it is just a human conceit to think that only humans are capable of creating things artificial.

7 Wonders (and a half) of POSTMODERN architecture?
Vanna Venturi House, 1959-64.
Piazza d'Italia, 1975-80.
Public Services Building (Portland), 1980-82.
AT+T Building, 1978-84.
seminal : highly original and influencing the development of future events
The Vanna Venturi House is the only seminal work within the above list. The rest are, at best, the apotheosis of Post-Modern architecture.
apotheosis : the ideal example; epitome; quintessence
Note the AT+T Building was complete a full 20 years after the Vanna Venturi House was complete. That's like relating a building completed today to a building completed in 1991!
