The Victory of Function Over Form?

3 Comments 17 February 2010

I saw this post on BoingBoing with panoramas of power plant control rooms and I got almost sad when I saw this one:

Hydroelectric Power Plant, Mirejovice – Control Room Gigapixel in Czech Republic

Look all the knobs and buttons and lights. It’s absolutely gorgeous and nothing like it will be made ever again. It’s not hard to believe that in 10-20 years all workstations will be boring, flat, touchscreens. Of course, this makes sense, but it bums me out just the same. They really don’t make ’em like they used to. Be sure to zoom in on the panoramic image. It has amazing detail.  BoingBoing has more.
