‘Architecture should speak its time and place, but yearn for timelessness'. Frank Gehry
Existing comfortably within the passage of time, these buildings exude permanence, while indicating the role they play in society, and the relevance of the materials and technology used.
The sites seen here were all built in the 20th century and have not yet stood the test of time. However, I believe that the aesthetics of their form and structure, while appearing to dominate, are closely aligned to their function as museums, research institutes, concert halls and public spaces, and ultimately will lend them timelessness.
