The Future of Web Design is Hidden in the History of Architecture

Excellent article! Genius typology!

I can see how we are currently in the renaissance period, according to your descriptions.

I have been trying to predict the future myself, and I think there are hints in the concept of preferences and corresponding symbolic objects. We need more ‘deep structure’ and less ‘floodle’! That means abandoning the idea that its all appearances, and embracing the idea that there is inherent gamification content. And making things appeal to the sensory mindset, as well as the symbolic / conceptual mind-set. It means more perfection, more taken-for-granted, and more visual metaphor.
