"an innate builtin truth ,here the controversy come again,because it may borrow some of its vital ingredients -(abstraction) as an example- from traditional and vernacular forms,objectivity and modernism is another critical issue
self-referential artistic ego is by its nature = subjectivity,to monopolize architectural scene and to erode all pre-architectural heritage is subjetive thinking and can not be objective logic,and i think in postmodernism we had deepen the wounds!"


Your text is difficult to for me to understand, but I think I probably haven't been clear myself.

I'm only trying to state what the intentions of Modernist Theory were. Modernism's idea was to be Objective; the History of Styles was viewed by Modernist as Subjective. I'm am not trying to convince you that this Theory right or at all successful. It only is a clarification of history of theory, of ideas.
