Death of American Architecture
by Dennis E. Rusk
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.
