Avoiding trends gives modern architecture an authenticity that other styles lack. As I mentioned earlier, it makes little sense to design a Tuscan home in the Sonoran Desert, or a pueblo home today, given that our technology is so radically different than what was available 250 years ago.
Ayn Rand's main character in The Fountainhead, architect Howard Roark, said it well: “A house can have integrity, just like a person; and just as seldom.” Too many homes lack integrity because they lack authenticity.
This entry is simple, clean and genuine. Nothing is aesthetically unnecessary.
