14. "RE: a helpful visual reference!"
In response to message #13
 
   Okay then, since you've invited me to, yes, I do think you're being conservative. I think your entire universe is marked by a certain aesthetic conservatism, which I get was your intention from the get-go (UF is basically Star Trek crossed with a John Hughes movie, after all), and I think you're too eager to dismiss stuff if it doesn't fit into a very traditional idea of beauty or aesthetic value. This is amazing. Someone built a safe, sturdy building that rises up high into the sky scant weeks after breaking ground. This is brilliant for disaster relief and while we had a failed experiment with brutalist architecture in the Sixties, I think you can turn this idea into fleets of temporary accommodation as an alternative to places like the camps at Sangatte. And by the way, I happen to think that with a more ecologically harmonious approach - climbing plants, say, or those new vertical garden things - it could be made to look rather pleasant. Almost like a skyscraper designed by hobbits.

Now, I freely admit this is me being pretentious, and I don't care. I'm not as conservative in my tastes as you are, and that's fine. I just don't particularly like it when people decide that everything that happened in a medium after the year Dot has no value and must be purged. It happens with art, it happens with architecture, and it happens with every other artistic medium (cf. all the nerd rage about "artsy" games that are, y'know, not brown shooters where you shoot various forrn people). But I respect your right to say so, and I hope you respect mine to disagree with you.
