in todays instant time where everything can be had in an instant, this house today may not be even here tomorrow or even the house of yesteryears..with the concept of design, construction and materials , all are build to last but also built for easy removal later to give way for a new project. the needs of tomorrow will be a factor..however, maybe. just maybe? ehh!! if a house built today is what we might call a classsic from the start design wise then maybe it'll have a chance of becoming a classic later in time meaning classic in its real sense of the world. now dont let me confused you with this.. classic from the start means, a design with excellent quality, visually and in function.i should say if it has some landmark quality when it was designed and built. while, classic in time, is what i refer to the building that outlast its period and its generation of architects...
