I guess it has to do with entropy of reality, being able to replicate complex phenomena and understanding that all the complexity really derives from simple rules is mesmerizing. If you add technology and you find yourself able to create such complexity, it becomes more of a I can do it kind of thing, sort of playing god. Maybe in the future the pendulum would go back again to simplicity like it has in the past for example from the baroque epoque and such objects become a relique like Notre Dame or the likes.
I don’t know if you think in terms of permutations, you can create out of something as simple as the rules for creating the Mies Barcelona pavilion (the lines, materials, dimensions, etc…) millions of “new” designs. For me it has to do with the space in question (a place of being relaxed), if I was going for a cementery something more brutalistic and with more light play would come to my mind.
