"theme" architecture - whatever one wants to call it. Fine.
the term "heavyweight" is, I believe a relative matter. Yes, there may be the very few in a generation who influence real changes, but there are also those who may not do "mega" work, but nonetheless achieve fine design.
isn't what you are seeking something that can only be seen in retrospect ? there are firms who do seek something new/progress, however one defines it. Future Systems, Lab Architecture Studio (Federation Square in Melbourne), and others.
some achieve progress, others maybe achieve a few fine buildings, and still others perhaps go down an architectural dead-end.
in my experience, it is not all architects who can "change scale".
don't blame Per - whether you like his ideas or not, you are free to make your own choices, and you would hardly be the first to start with the "coolest crap" to get you going.
