Architecture and emotion

The dominant architecture today has only existed for a century and has not developed a coherent architectural language – and apparently it does not want to. Each modernist architect wants to do something new or different, and hence there has been no growth of a pattern language. This, Salingaros believes, causes it to generate feelings that people naturally try to resist, as they normally seek to resist incoherence, and, if they fail, the emotions that arise can be negative, or even unhealthy, causing vertigo or even illness.
