Of course the question is: do we need buildings for purposes other
than providing sensory input? (Which can much more cheaply (and
dynamically) be provided a la consensual mass hallucination? Some
architects today produce walk-through capable virtual mockups, perhaps
in future that is all what they will produce ;)
And how do you relate to being whose whole time/space perception is
radically heterogenous? Babelfish for the senses, I guess...

Where you need physical protection (such as relativistic interstellar
travel) you would rather totally restructure/rebuild yourself.
