'Corpse lillies' – but of course they'd have 'em! About the first thing I asked on the first day was that while I totally get the aesthetic of the city referencing great civilisations/ancient cultures (and obviously goes hand in hand with the Engineers looking like classical statues), I wanted to know why/how the shift happened to the Giger/biomechanical look. I never did get an answer so I invented one for my backstory/inserted it into my/David's scientific notes, here as it applies to flora and fauna studies. From the right hand side: "It also occurs to me to investigate the possibility that the seemingly divergent shift from previously monolithic and simple forms of classic Engineer architecture to the post-industrial aesthetic especially apparent in their interplanetary vehicles and spacesuits are actually the result of a congruent return to even older and natural forms. Possibly the result of both an aesthetic epiphany and the technological means to achieve it. Culminating in a relatively sudden shift combining anthropomorphism, zoomorphism, and phylotomorphic traits. Not to mention the vascularity inherent in mechanically or technologically based branching systems and architectural structures, so that an all-encompassing type of 'bio-mechanical' view emerged."
