The simple way to to describe the architectural design trend of the 90s
which persists to this day is to call it what it is: SketchUp Architecture
but most fascista homos being what they are will invent a "vocabulary" so
they can clearly describe the elegant segmental components of juxtaposed
platonic shapes being used to define and delineate relationships derived
using additive or subtractive spatial properties which contribute to our
environment in a positive manner.
I guess I should have been more specific in my critique. Of course curves
and the barrel roof/vault has been around for a very long time, and I can
certainly appreciate them.
My comments are more toward the barrel being asymmetrically clocked. Not
that there is anything wrong with it, just that it seemed to
proliferate Ad nauseam in the 90s.
It reminds me of the over the top, supposed contemporary, 1980s Italian
furniture like this:
I think that *curves* and their use will remain. Arches (and their kin)
can be very beautiful, and strong, but they have to make sense, or at least
add a lot of interest. Simply taking a rectangle, tho', and plopping a
surved roof on it isn't what I think of as "enduring design".
