If theres one thing we learned from two millenia of Western architecture is that architecture evolves. But a building inherently
stays the same. Technology over the past 50 yrs has evolved faster then at any point in human history. Doesn't art and arch. reflect the cultural aspect of its time? It would be a travesty to build the same way for the sake of tradition. I don't deny the importance of symbolic archetypes, but the democratic method of balancing the importance of historical tradition and symbolic invention has increased the envelope to adopt new forms of architecture. These new forms are in there infancy. When he makes statements like this style will pass, I beg to differ. We should embrace innovative tectonics and the spaces they can offer.
