Perhaps because he stands at a unique juncture between two conflicting worlds: the old world of hand-drawn blueprints and two-by-fours; and the new world of computer software that makes possible a dazzling variety of shapes. Even in his skilled hands, however, these twisting, bending forms sometimes look better on the computer screen than when they get built.
