Back to the Future

Before the grid there was dilation and after the grid there will be dilation. The postmodern, if it ever arrives, will look much like the pre-modern, because the grid, the metric of some long dead king’s arm, is completely irrelevant to how space organizes it’s self, this realization combined with the fact that tension structures deploy material more efficiently than compression ones can, will drive our going “back to the future.” The realization that space can be self metric is the missing link between where we have been lately and where we are going. Design efficiency.
