Throw-away Architecture

"After twenty years, the style is outdated, the need has changed, the function is obsolete, so the form has become inefficient and unnecessary, so there is simply no need for anything to last more than twenty years. With the increasing dependence on graphics programs and websites, impermanence is the expected—in no other industry than computers is there such rapid turnover for product design. State–of–the–art software becomes outdated in two years, websites often change by the day. No one wants let alone expects permanence in anything that is designed. The consumer age welcomes throw–away design."

(Megan Arendt)
