The Problems of Apostasy: Architecture in the Modern Age by Peter Kellow

The theory that underpins modernist architecture rests on a fundamental premise, which is this: there exists a modern age (the age in which we live) that is radically distinct from what went before. Modernism then goes on from this to claim an exclusive right to be considered the appropriate architecture for this modern age. Thus, it argues that what we would normally regard as “traditional” architecture should not be employed in the contemporary world.

In evaluating the modernist position, we first need to address this premise of a modern age. Is the concept valid? And if it is, how should it be defined? Modernists respond to these questions by saying that the idea of a modern age is valid because in the last two or three hundred years there has occurred a revolution in science and technology that has caused a radical break with the previous era. Science and technology therefore justify and define the idea of the modern age.

Whereas we may question the modernist characterization of the modern age, that does not mean that the very idea of it is not valid. Over the last two or three hundred years, there has undoubtedly occurred a radical change in the culture in which we live. But we need to ask ourselves whether this change is profound enough to justify supposing a definite break. I would suggest that the modern age is a valid concept but the Modernist attempt to characterize it by the developments in scientific knowledge and technology is not just superficial but wholly misguided...
