The presentation ultimately observed that the components of a city’s ‘identity’ have changed overtime, and in turn become separate from the identity of its inhabitants. This in turn shifted the focus of designers from connecting people towards first creating a monumental city through modernist architecture, and now towards creating a “generic city” through post-modernism.
This ultimately creates a dystopian view of future architecture, which in turn needs to be reconnected to cultural, ecological, and scarcity factors.
