how do we actually view and categorize modern architecture? in particular, i am doing research on asian architecture. generally, i believe modern architecture in asia was originated from european or brought into asia during the colonization in the late 18th century and early 19th century. let's look at the supreme court in singapore, it manifests perfectly those distinctives european style or should i classified it into neoclassicism?
B. could i argue that it started when a country of departed from its distintives and exotic arhitectural style or embracing and combining culture and style?
C. the last point i would like to make here is very blurred according to my tutor. i also see the achievements and invention in technology, contruction methods and new materials has been contributing to what we now perceived as modern architecture. see how those renaissance and baroque style domes are adopted now in glass framed domes, fabric and tension architecture? and also how frank o'ghery had used titanium in his Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao
could anyone post his or her point of view and thoughts regarding modernism in asia? or perhaps recommend some resources or books?
