‘Critique of 20th-Century Evolution’ by Charles Jenks

Detail

“The evolutionary perspective forces a critical and self-critical view on the historian because it includes unwelcome trends and events, here marked in red. Reactionary Modernism, a concept and label not confronted until the 1980’s (and the work of sociologists such as Jeffrey Herf and David Harvey), forces us to confront its parallels with more positive forms of Modernism. My architectural preferences are made explicit, in green.” — Charles Jenks
