Interesting CNN website article below focuses on technological innovations driving modern architecture.

This article also made me wonder how new technologies have influenced the Frost Tower being constructed downtown.  I was reminded of a Fort Worth Business article on the state of downtown written by Marice Richter (see Post#22 in "State of Downtown FW," City Issues).  Referring to Frost Tower, Richter wrote "...the new skyscraper is generating buzz as a 21st Century marvel with exquisite design features and amenities..."   Is Frost Tower an illustration of technology-driven architecture?  I'm not intending to create extended discussion about the Frost Tower project itself, which is discussed in a separate thread.
