For years, actually for almost a century the “elite” architects of the world have been honing their skills in the art of exclusion. Reductionism has reined supreme as the Holy Grail of the minimalist ideal, sought, pursued, and relentlessly forced upon the public. The public has been too smart, they have not been fooled, and they have not been shamed into accepting it. At the same time, these elite architects have “elevated” themselves into their own exclusive club. A club so elevated, I believe they now dwell on the moon, or some other inhospitable planet.
