It took long years during modernism that a particular form would find its place in present design mainstream because it was pretty well established by the Bauhaus and other white wall-ers and the elite still was The Elite.</p> <p> That has changed during the postmodern years but still it took five years or so for formal trends to take shape.</p> <p> With the advancement of the digital technology, time span of formal gestures in building designs have just about caught up with fashion industry&rsquo;s seasonality, authors' whim and students' desire to participate in the advancement of architectural relevancy.
