guardians of galactic architecture
Apparently, the art department of a recent Hollywood sci-fi movie concluded that a utopian city on a far-away planet should be designed by Norman Foster and Santiago Calatrava. I applaud this creativity, because after all, we all know that lots of glass and funky bridges are the most pure symbol of advanced civilizations. What could be the alternative? If you look closely, you'll see a lot of canals, so maybe the place looked liked Venice before an urban planning committee decided that a space-age society needed more European contemporary architecture.
