Abstract

Architects are no more successful at predicting the future than astrologers or soothsayers. Human beings are quick to adapt to new realities and development does not go in a straight line; they can have – from a Modernist perspective – a perverse attachment to traditions that bring the past into the present. If timelessness means the sense of stepping outside time and change that comes from ignoring passing fashions, we must look to tradition rather than Modernism.
