Yes....the definitions of modern, post-modern, traditional, and historical are manifold. You're right about Meier. He and most so-called modern architects today are really in the realm of the picturesque. They are cutting and pasting Modern imagery just as the post-moderns were doing with traditional imagery. There are few authentics. Renzo Piano comes to mind. Norman Foster as well. What constitutes Modernism today is a great topic...but unfortunately I'm out of time....
