1. Schoenberg is a modern composer - brilliant and truly foul to listen to
2. Robert Loewy was a designer of considerable influence in the 20th. Century
3. if anyone wishes to see the Seagram building as "timeless" that is a matter for them
4. why London ? Because if you seek timelessness in blank-eyed modernism, you may not be thanked for it.
Now take a look at the Piano tower and what is being proposed for Canada Water down the road and heaven alone knows what else. That part of London is one of its most historic districts.
let me put it simply: remember Nouvelle Cuisine ? pretentious crap, but don't worry - students definitely could not afford it. Now imagine urban environments designed the same way.
