Gosh! ask a simple question and get a load of manic depressives ranting at you. When you ask what type of building would reflect our times, you have to consider monumental historical architecture, most monuments be it church or city, as in the case of St Petersburg, where built to give praise to god or to a person. Religion was once the driving force of fantastic architectural feats and men who considered themselves gods would appoint architects to create great buildings in their name. What are the driving forces of today, not religion, not single men, surely it is money. That is why so little great architecture is commissioned, the cost is too great a consideration, better a cheap building system with a lifespan of 25 years????? Hope that you find a way to express yourself, you have to consider what we are going to find significant in the future - longevity and environmental concerns
