There is something happening here and it is the Suburbanist transformation of global culture. In brief my observation is that the goal of the Suburbanist cultural leadership is to remove the need for an individual’s search for knowledge and to have the newest Web 2.0 netizens look for and be defined only by consumerist contentment.
FASHIONWORLD’s singular objective is to define and control the vocabulary of human happiness.
I view the strategic progression as Walt Disney to Andy Warhol to Steve Jobs to Larry Page/Sergey Brin to Marc Zuckerberg to Miuccia Prada and finally back to Walt Disney.
In a Suburbanist world everything already happened and the Suburbanist corporations who control the intellectual property of the past need to keep repeating that past which they already own and present it as the future.
This asserts and insures their control. This is the Apple Campus 2 INFINITY LOOP.
The design of the building is not just aesthetic. It is the operational feed-back loop protecting the systems power. It is the nexus of THE SOFT-CARPETED WORLD.
