The two way stretch: modernism, tradition, and innovation
Robert Maxwell presents his friendly polemic which reacts against the set positions over defined by style and ideology such as hi-tech, classical revival and attempts to justify a more flexible mediatorial position that would not simply be compromise. The discussion covers the alternative approaches of abstraction which brings a kind of personal freedom and representation which carries a social duty, and therefore deals with the potentially conflicting demands of personal expression and the contextual forces in the environment.
