summary Much of what computers allow us to do is spectacular. Indeed, much of current architectural production is better than before if considered objectively — better engineered, more efficient, more ergonomic — and yet, much is also curiously devoid of meaning. Like the spectacular display of ergonomically designed and computer manufactured shoes at a “lifestyle” shoe store, the designs are advanced, clever, and inventive — but to what end? Let me quickly underscore that this is not just a problem for architecture, indeed, the same can be said for just about every mode of production; there is more of everything — and less absorption of anything significant — and less to absorb, even.
