Midcentury modern has reached that unloved age

“Midcentury modern has reached that unloved age that all architectural styles pass through — and midcentury modern will pass through it too. Let’s not forget that when Modernist buildings were going up, all of those antique architectural styles that are so beloved now were considered by many to be outdated and overly ornate. In the era of urban renewal and at other points in our history, we tore them down, and now we regret it. Will the same thing happen to modern architecture?”
