So there are other things besides scale that are problematic. One of them is that the features which used to structure scale for the eye, manage scale—systems of ornament and 34 C H A P T E R O N E decoration—are no longer available to contemporary architects. So we are confronted by the huge height of buildings of repeated floors, the extended ranges of windows of unchanging size and type, the expanse of boring walls. Scale is a problem. The most admired composition of buildings and spaces in the United States is the University of Virginia by Thomas Jefferson.

But the outrage is over size, not style, for the style is generally a blown-up version of some traditional house. Oddly, it is only when the building of houses becomes public building—the public housing of the United States, the council housing of Britain—that we see the characteristic grumbling against modernism and the international style emerge. The public at large, and even the sophisticated public, is in the position of knowing what it likes and what it doesn't like, but not being able to explain just why.

This reflects what has happened to art generally. The modern sculptor or painter, even when he uses public funds on a public commission, does not want to compromise his individual vision, however incomprehensible it may be to others. If he is well enough known, he need not compromise it. The architect as artist worked well enough when architects designed within traditions that limited and guided them.
