"What can be the authenticity of curtain wall? " I think it is the central question about what is un-authenticity in modern architecture. As we know early modern architecture asked questions about form ,function, space ,and technology, but nowadays some famous architects just know how to decorate the surface or skin of buildings and it is a dominating style all the world£®though it is phonily labeled by researching the ecology £©. I think its essentiality is just ornament, and the ornament is not be used as an explicit concept , only a personal style. So how feeble the contemporary architecture is, and does the absence of traditional culture make for un-authenticity in modern architecture?
