i've been searching for an answer to that very question for years now.
perhaps that's why i'm so excited by what little we've seen so far. so much is unknown from these small scans of a poor black and white newspaper image that to make any concrete proclomations about the design, good or bad, is more than a bit foolish, but this at least has some potential to be something truly special.
the great concern is that no matter what arquitectonica comes up with, the design will go through the dreaded "lowenburg-ification" and it'll be dumbed down to mediocrity, or worse. seeing how aqua shapes up will tell us a lot about the direction this one might go in.
