true modernism

August 21, 2013 — 1 Comment

“Modernism is not in the dress of the Europeans . . . or in the square houses with flat straight wall-surfaces, pierced with parallel lines of windows, where these people are caged in their lifetime . . . These are not modern but merely European. True modernism is freedom of mind, not slavery of taste.”

– Rabindranath Tagore, lectures in Japan, 1916-1917.


One response to true modernism

    True Modernism is a relative word. In my opinion Modernism doesn’t mean only new buildings, but it is related to the time use of the building.If a building has a longer time use than another building it is more modern. This could also be called a sustainable building.We are living in a civilization of one factor, when we move to a civilization of multiple factors we will have a better environment.
