Can it be that the spaceship earth has have had a forty-year gap in projective visions?… Or, is any thing & everything architects are doing with software the present day equivalent of in-house / laptop utopias?

Enjoy the history lesson…

Another way to think about this vision issue could be the following :
The building this blog was written is utopian…hope one day you find it.
