The aesthetics of new architecture has spawned many publications, essays, theories. Ultimately, however, architecture is concerned with buildings and not theories. Ben van Berkel, a young Dutch architect (designer of the Rotterdam cable-stayed bridge) insisted ‘that he is of a different generation, implicitly criticising them [meaning educators of young architects] for designing buildings to suit their theories’ (quoted from Philip Jodidio (1996) Contemporary European Architects, Volume IV, Taschen).
