I'm not an architect...
But I have noticed that in the residential field there is a lot of interest in older "kit" or prefab houses, such as Sears houses from the early twentieth century.
These are now viewed by some as nostalgic structures, particularly for the workmanship, the materials, and, finally, for the traditional forms- all of which, presumably, were orchestrated by architects of that time....
Perhaps architects who design houses today aim too much at the high, custom end of the scale; if they got involved with mass production (as designers do in the auto industry) would they not then be more included in the final impression?
