What’s changed?

The opening paragraph of Rob Annable’s post on BD’s Housing blog (see last post) reminded me of one of my all-time favourite architectural quotes – from late-modernist ‘Dutch master’ Aldo van Eyck:

‘(Modern architects) have been harping continually on about what is different in our time to such an extent that they have lost touch with what is not different, with what is essentially the same’.

If you like that you’ll love the second of Douglas Kelbaugh’s ‘Seven Fallacies of Architectural Culture’ – the ‘Mandatory Invention Fallacy’.
