The coronavirus crisis calls for a new moral and aesthetic code for architecture


Oh dear, architects must ‘stop following style or theory’ and then ‘we must work to create bold forms’, what is this but the same old Hegelian theory turned into style. Well, maybe things will be different, maybe not. Is it just possible that old vernacular was an efficient use of locally available materials? Why can’t architects say something sensible without going over the tired old ‘we must look different’ mantra.
