What I find entirely lacking in modern architecture today is detail. The grand scheme may be impressive, but such things as interior fittings and the like are entirely ubiquitous, insipid and probably cheap. I was recently in the Herzog & DeMeuron designed De Young and the bathrooms looked like anything in a suburban library and the door handles, etc. were incredibly generic looking. For this age of so-called individuality, there is not much individuality at all, which is all the more suitably ironic given contemporary criticism of say, how 1960s and 1970s Brutalism stripped away individual identity. I realize one of the tenets of so-called contemporary architecture is to reference the Modernists in their ideas of mass-produced design, but the organic, rather individualistic nature of the new architecture seems to refute such notions of standardization.
