    • Fashion = Style
      • “ 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.”
      • - Stewart Brand, How Buildings Learn
  • 7.
    • Fashion = Style = Art
      • “ Art is radical, but buildings are inherently conservative. Art experiments , experiments fail, art costs extra. Art throws away old, good solutions.”
      • - Stewart Brand, How Buildings Learn

    • What is Style?
      • “ A style is the consequence of recurrent habits, restraints, or rules invented or inherited, written or overheard, intuitive or preconceived.”
      • - Paul Rand, Good Design is Good Will, 1987
      • (as quoted in Steven Heller’s Stylepedia, 2007)
  • 32.
    • Why Style is a Dirty Word
      • Style is superficial, incomplete
      • Style diverts focus from functionality
      • Style-based solutions are impermanent
      • Style is exclusionary and elitist
      • Style provokes “the anxiety of influence”
