Are websites today what buildings used to be for businesses? Is the impression one gets from a company's web analogous to the impact head officers were expecting to create when they invested in high-profile architecture or, at least, pompous headquarters?

Architecture in the digital world remains as a purely functional necessity - as long as you have a convincing presence on the web.
This hypothesis is enhanced by Newsweek's last issue cover to go for print. 2013 will see more of the activity in most business sectors abandon the physical space to go mainly online. Are we eventually going to pay less attention in the space that surrounds us people that keep the thing going? Are we going introvert, spatially speaking?
Till more questions come up, we wish you a happy digital year in a happy physical world!
