It may be popular to decry all forms of modernism as somehow “bad.” In architecture, especially, this call of classicism can be strong. However, designing an office building with Doric columns seems, to me, silly.
So having got the fact I am not completely anti-modernity, I would like to remark on the trend towards what I would term psychotic architecture. This is a style of architecture that breaks any link of form and function. Instead, it seeks to impose a sense of confusion and disorientation on the user. It seems as if the occupants of the building have been demoted from human users to supplicants of the architectural vision.
While posting the images, I noticed that Frank Gehry was heavily represented. This was more by chance than intent. I could probably have created another page for Daniel Libeskind (creator of ugly museums).
