Is something inherently better about Modern that other styles? If so what is it? The ability to distinguish the subtle qualities of that question is significant.

I would argue that 'styles' themselves are the problem. I prefer the language of modernism as well, but is it dangerous when it becomes just another language of architecture, not a way of thinking that loads to a particular way of making.

Sorry, that should have meen, "lEads" to a particular way of making"

Oh you should get your hands on a copy of Adolf Behne's The Modern Functional Building, really good ideas but it can be a task to read.

you can find out more about his work at my blog, architectural ruminations,
