Gershenfield and kahn articles
Reading this article was kind of confusing to me. Im not a big fan of all the fancy wording choices and all that good stuff to make it sound intelligent.
but I know that I would have loved to take that class in MIT with the machine (fabricators) that prints out your work in a 3 dimensional state. I was not shocked to see that the number of students that came was more than expected. They had to aquire a bigger classroom. he stated that yeah the innovation right now is expensive but hopes it will eventually be one of them items that many people can afford to keep in thier homes for everyday use. I think it is really interesting how the article talks about technology and how machine made machine. Once again back to the part where machines take the place of humans ;) I also thought it was interesting how these Fab Labs were described. basically technology is the key focus in these labs and thus it is born!!!!!
In the kahn article it lost me for the most part. I read but i believe that I dont remember much. His article was entirely to long to not install enough information in my head. But i did get the notion that he was talking about the past history of architecture and how art in general relates to it. Also how architecture is unique and comes from nature. (Space is nature) I think that he considers architecture to be technology. i agree with him on that note because there are endless ways that people may have not even thought of yet in designing things in space to make it look very innovative.
