  4. 6. <ul><li>Fashion = Style </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ As for fashion, it is change for its own sake – a constant unbalancing of the status quo, cruelest perhaps to buildings, which would prefer to remain just as they are, heavy and obdurate, a holdout against the times. Buildings are treated by fashion as big, difficult clothing, always lagging embarrassingly behind the mode of the day.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Stewart Brand, How Buildings Learn </li></ul></ul>
  5. 7. <ul><li>Fashion = Style = Art </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Art is radical, but buildings are inherently conservative. Art experiments , experiments fail, art costs extra. Art throws away old, good solutions.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Stewart Brand, How Buildings Learn </li></ul></ul>

  8. 32. <ul><li>Why Style is a Dirty Word </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Style is superficial, incomplete </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Style diverts focus from functionality </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Style-based solutions are impermanent </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Style is exclusionary and elitist </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Style provokes “the anxiety of influence” </li></ul></ul>
