The computer has ruined architecture... irrevocably.

Not "the computer"... bad architects using computers

So be it - yet another very new Spain Gaudi project :)

About "bad" computers - I don't think so. It sounds for me like "bad pencils" or "bad cannabis" - just na architect's tools, take it easy.

Wow! I love the swoopy drama of this design. Although it does look incomplete - like a skeleton structure awaiting its cladding.
