Question: What's the most exciting development in architecture today?

Lee Mindel: Every age is a kind of amalgam of its technology and it’s wonderful to sort of trace the history of architecture through technology and particularly now in a very technological driven society, there is an awful lot of things being driven by the computer, by the web, by streaming media, but in a way although those are devices they still don’t require the need to think and feel.
