Yeah i agree, with post modernism though it allowed alot of shit architects to gain attention and get things built. It also gave developers a 'style' which involved no risk but gave them an angle to argue design quality, when there was none.

All i was trying to put accross was that Po-Mo allowed ancient structural systems to still be used and for cheap crappy cladding systems to become acceptable. The design of the interior space became arbitrary, being deemed stylish as long as there is plenty of teal and cream panels. Even though the spatial planning was completely out-dated and unsuitable for modern requirements.
