OK...in a context that is a vacuum - and its argueable if such a thing exists - this autonomous kind of architecture may have a place (I won't even bring up the problem of tectonics ). But in a town or a city, like the Foster example, the disregard for the public realm is reprehensible. I don't care if it is expressive of the "instability of our modern society" as it has been put, urban structures need to reflect the needs of the constructed community let alone enhance these communities. This is sort of a narcisistic architecture of alienation inspired more by rebellion and cultural insecurity than anything positive, like space and light not to mention permanence. I have no doubt that in the context of architectural history, this will pass just like po-mo did. Pastry chefs indeed!
