The WTC pit is the ur-skyscraper experience, reminder of the sunken plaza so beloved in the 60s for hi-rises which offered more rentable space below ground level. That Libeskind wants to glamorize the aesthetics of the slurry wall, indeed is working with the structural engineer who designed it, shows what landmarking can be used for. The glazing over the sacred wall is a nice Damien Hirst sliced cow rip-off.

And speaking of a "Damien Hirst sliced cow rip-off," how's this for something completely pre-Damien Hirst? It's even 1984!

if ever there were wedges...

Re: The Future of War Aesthetics, Politics, Technologies
Perhaps all that is really happening is that many humans (especially the younger human element on this planet) have succumb to believing that if it isn't on a screen it just isn't real enough anymore.
When the Apostles asked Christ when Jerusalem would come to an end, He answered "when the desecration of desecration stands where it ought not." Thus, when a statue of Caesar was placed within the Temple precinct, the subsequent Hebrew revolt ended with the Fall of Jerusalem. Then, when the Apostles asked Christ when the world would come to an end, He answered, "Watch." Could it be that what Christ meant is that the world will end when everyone in the world will be doing nothing but watching a screen, and that the Second Coming will occur via Christ taking over all electro-magnetic planetary communications whether plugs are pulled or not?
At least not in my lifetime.

The dead Piranesi likes Philadelphia because of the design of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Plus, almost 240 years after Piranesi secretly changed the Ichnographia Campus Martius into a second state, the two versions of the large plan were finally discovered in Philadelphia. Piranesi made the secret changes only to see who would ultimately discover them.

the state of drawing in education
In terms of drawing tool evolution then:
CAD offers an abundance of drawing tools and drawing capabilities.
The (so-called) inbuilt tendencies of CAD drawing tools are abundantly customizable.
The drawing field within CAD is also abundantly customizable.
CAD drawing data is fluid, easily manipulated, easily reproduced (thus making changes easily recordable, etc.).
It probably helps to have a fluid drawing/designing mindset to then optimally utilize the abundant capabilities of computer aided design/drawing.
Is it yet an inbuilt tendency for educators to instruct customization?
