Tromp l’oeil

I have seen the future of architecture, and it does not involve building, at least not in the conventional sense.  Imagery dominates our lives on a daily basis, we are confronted with it constantly.  It becomes our means of expression, a necessary reference for any discussion (even this blog).  We are nearing the time when the visual will displace the physical.  A time when the fashion of the facade will take its ultimate manifestation, amending itself, or perhaps more fittingly our perception of itself, to suit the moment. Simply stated architecture, even moving architecture, is too slow to address the shifting multitudes of the digital age.  Sur les pavés la image!
