“A number of seemingly spontaneous developments over the past half century have made it increasingly difficult to continue with the ‘tradition of the new’ in any significant way. If we intended, by this term, the unfinished liberative modern projects as this has been cherished by progressive thinkers since the beginning of the Enlightenment.”
Kenneth Frampton (1930), British architect, critic, historian. Ware professor of Architecture at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University, New York.
