An Updated Critical Theory Of Modernism
"There is an emerging movement in architecture today that seeks to revive aspects of traditional architecture, as an antidote to modernism. Indeed, as I shall describe, there are indications in the new sciences that offer support for the great sophistication and adaptive power of traditional processes.But the traditionalists have fallen into a political trap: they have been branded as backward and 'reactionary' in contrast to the modernists, who hold themselves out as the forward-looking alternative. This has been seen in a number of recent high-profile events such as the World Trade Center reconstruction design competition in New York City."
