American architecture is dying a slow, agonizing death, akin to a disease that eats away at the human spirit. The individualist creative minds in American architecture flourished between the World Wars - Organic, Arts & Crafts, Art Deco. Now the death toll rings monotonously as artistic endeavors of architectural design melt into mediocrity. Greatness is poorly imitated and rarely improved upon.

Un modello ligneo e una città. Un grande modello di legno di una preziosa chiesa e una piccola, forse ancora incerta, città.

Ein hölzernes Modell und eine Stadt. Das große Holzmodell einer hochgeschätzten Kirche und eine kleine, vielleicht noch nicht geformte Stadt. Das Zusammentreffen dieser beiden völlig unabhängigen und autonomen Wirklichkeiten öffnet einen Weg der Spekulation, und es lohnt sich, ihn zu verfolgen, wenn auch nur aus einer ganz menschlichen und verständlichen Neugier heraus.

A wooden model and a city. A large wooden model of a valuable church and a small city that is perhaps still unsure of itself. The clash between these two completely independent and autonomous realities opens up a path of inquiry that deserves to be followed, if only out of a legitimate and very human sense of curiosity.
