    Image: A History of Architecture (48 Icons)

    These are of course generalizations, and not from every era, and it's mostly Western, but this image is hopefully useful to anyone interested.

    Seems to really go downhill after ArtDeco. I find modern buildings to be ugly as hell. A lot of it of course is just cost cutting. Some newer buildings don't even have a finished look about them, exposed ceilings with air ducts and ceiling exposed etc. But the look of their exteriors as well is awful.
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    It's so difficult to select a favourite! Lately I've been enamoured of National Romanticism, with its decorative ornamentation derived from folktales and myths. Neo-Renaissance is quite breathtaking, too. On the other hand, I generally dislike Functionalism and Modernism.
    'Well, what are you?" said the Pigeon. "I can see you're trying to invent something!" "I-I'm a little girl," said Alice, rather doubtfully. She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.

    Brutalism for me, but I wonder why there is no actual Futurism on that list. Is it because Futurism has not really existed IRL, but instead mostly in artwork? Or is the Neo-Futurism on that list actually a second attempt to bring this to reality?

    If there was some combination of Brutalism and Futurism, that exits in the real world, it would be a dream.
