Do any contemporary architects
understand enough about mathematics (beyond additive planning
and accidental occurrences) to apply it in their work? And even
if they did, why should they do so, given the collapse of ancient
mimesis and related understanding until the 18th century, which
was the foundation of such applications in the past?
While I recognise that I have
adopted a very negative view, I should like to be proved wrong,
as the question is most interesting and provocative!
