Lessons of History and Search for "New Global Style" in Architecture

Nina Kazhar


The diversity of theoretical concepts in the modern architecture has led to the situation that in early 21st century one of the trends of the modern architectural theory is the search for the ways of creating a New Global Style. A similar situation was observed in the middle of the 19th century, when classicism was replaced by numerous neo-styles; and the main problem of the architectural thought was a search for the style of the epoch. The paper deals with the analysis of "lessons of history".


Architectural theory; style of the epoch; global style
