Elites and Stars of Modern Architecture

Alexander Rappaport

Abstract


In the shift from aristocratic society to democracy professional and social elites still are lacking definite cultural norms and attitudes. Rapid change of tastes and political influence blurs common attitudes and values, intuitive and rational methods of decision making, moral and artistic values. Architectural schools trying to accommodate to those changes lose their professional permanency.

Keywords


aristocracy; democracy; avant-garde; mass society; schools; starchitects; norms; tastes
