Professor of Architecture and Dean of the College of Architecture and Planning Mark Gelernter
published an essay, “Making Room for Traditional Architecture
,” in Traditional Building
magazine, February 2013 issue.
Gelernter has written several books addressing the ideas architects use to explain or justify their design approach. In this essay, he examines five arguments commonly used by Modernists to promote their approach as fundamentally different from, and inherently better than, traditional design.
