Political issues are complex but it seem that architecture have a minor role, bad as what would be more obvious in a rebuilding process to use the rebuild to restore a society and bring different inviroments better living and jobs. Now sorry I leave this important issue, but we don't even know the possible impack with new technologies ; how much are the expences just transporting building elements, how much will be saved with a uniform material and simplified mashinery to produce the actural bulding elements and what impac will it have on cost when long assembly lines are replaced with manufactoring equipment on site . How will it effect the choice of detail and expression when what before would be unrealistic by cost, suddenly are within reach .
I would wonder very much, if not the expansion in micro level will not have an impack on architecture, as perfection in miniature will have an impack but high-tech still share a lot of the visions with modernism and from my oppinion what it do, is that it put more quality into everything, ----- also into the reactions when you ask for what is missing it only sharpen your values.
Anyway back to the political issues, guess schools and houses are just an inviroment issue, but the shapes and functions shape our minds, like the propotions of the buildings when you grow up will have a huge impack about what you find nice.
