The Fairy Tale of Modernism
Here's another nugget from Ann Cline:
"Until Humpty-Dumpty falls from a wall of concrete - not of brick or stone - there can be no dependable clientele for modern architecture. Until Little Red Riding Hood's grandmother lives in a cottage modled after the Barcelona Pavillion, the appeal of childhood literature will instead sustain a domestic market for pitched roofs and mullioned windows."
How about that for an idea? There are so many delightful children's books coming out lately. Illustration has been taken up several complete levels. What about a new series of fairy tales set amidst a landscape of international modernism. We could change the whole world of residential design in particular - in one short generation. I think the AIA should fund it!
