True, to a point. Modernism, however, was a European rebellion against that tradition, when in its heyday. Now, with the passage of time, European Modernism has become just another sedimentary layer in that "evolving porridge of the past."

The U.S., in contrast, is a schizoid culture, partly clinging to the past (witness the pendulum swing toward "Old World" design in the housing market), while, at the same time, partly embracing the future.
