I think if it progresses at the rate it does at the moment, it'll be brick, pitched roofs and clocks all round.

Architecture has been crawling forward over the last 100 years. And in the 70's and 80's the rise of Post Modernism allowed it to regress about 50 years. And allowed some very untalented architects to impact on the built environment.

Architecture needs to push forward on all fronts technology, aesthetics, design quality and social responsibility.

And the architects with a true vision like Will Alsop, Jan Kaplicky, Kas Oosterhuis etc etc need to be given freedom to create. And people like Michael Graves and Terry Farrell need to be pensioned off before their bland style influences any more shopping centres, cinemas or whatever insipid crap crowds our cities and towns.
