    You can actually play with me, agri-chan. But I haven't played in months due to my thesis. But I think i still got it going if i should brush up a bit.

    My video card sweats while i´m playing Warcraft GK....i think the frame rate for Guild Wars would be something like a frame per minute here ^^;;

    The only thing that runs smoothly here is....Ultima Online...........2D. #D

    There are lots of pc games i´d like to play, but unfortunaly i have to make a big upgrade before even trying ;(

    Sagrada Familia by Gaudi, in Barcelona, is one of my favourite ones. The incredible mathematic studies Gaudi had to do to build it - when no one even dreamed about computers - are awesome! That church is more than architecture....it´s a sculpture, and it´s...totally human labor and love! I just can´t explain it. ;~ When I think about it, I feel guilty for bashing Autocad. The guy made it all with paper and his hands, for god´s sake! ;~~~~)

    Gaudi started to build it in 1882, spent all his life on it, died without seeing the complete work...and it hasn´t been finished till today, people are still working on it! It almost brings tears to my eyes, i hope someday I can visit it. Just perfect. Gaudi > all. ;~~)

    Spoiler: Catedral de Brasília show

    Not just because I´m brazilian, but I think that Oscar Niemeyer´s work is top notch. I love each of his buildings, and I can´t just choose one...but as I was talking about churches today, I couldn´t let this one out.
    Hey, the Gaudi's building is impressive. I'm not sure what style do you call that - gothic? But these are the kind of buildings that i prefer anytime over the modern clean look buildings these days, which means, i can't relate to the second style that you've show here. And you are right!! It's totally amazing how did they ever do those complicated buildings without using autocad at all.

    The one 'building' that always make me wonder is the pyramids. How did they ever do that?? Elephants? Triangle wheels? Labour?! What's your theory on it?

    so sorry for your pc... when our pc isn't quite good, it's a shame, but it's still working; when it 'dies' it's even more awful...

    your theory about the pyramids is good, i agree with that. people create crazy theories about aliens and incredible machines when everything can be done with muscles...

    I believe it's Art Nouveau, Nami-san.

    Speaking of pyramids, that was my term paper in high school. Quite entertaining paper to do, really. It's a testament to human ingenuity, and of course, slavery hehehe. But if I remember correctly, egyptians themselves were involved in the making, and were quite dedicated about it too, because of their beliefs.

    Thats a sad thing to say.. yet perhaps true.. America the Brittania of cg.


    Well since you and bb are future architects I'd thought I'd mention my thoughts on it. Basically, my grasp of architecture is that you guys design beautiful buildings but I feel that alot of times we forget about the old beautiful buildings. I know when I travel I've seen alot of amazing structures but yet other that are old and diminshed. If only we could focus on restoration of buildings instead of new all the time, I think things would be better.
    How much heat can you take?

    Gots, it actually depends on the architect. There are some who specialize in Restoration all their life, like my professor (who teaches historical architecture, btw).

    And am I right in recalling that Agri-chan's thesis was restoration as well? Or adaptive reuse something?
