A Place for Placeless Architecture

Within the past twenty years the world has become interconnected through the upload and download relationship brought about by the creation and accessibility of the internet. With users being able to interact with one another from across the globe, the importance of locality has been completely overcome by the sense of endless availability. This interconnection has given rise to a disconnection of place, especially in the realm of architecture. With an open source exchange, contemporary buildings have begun to represent a sense of sameness and no longer point to an origin of style. Globalization has given unity for the price of identity in architecture. With the constant influx of information made accessible by the rise of the internet, architecture has begun to become placeless through the appropriation of elements that are given little time to obtain an inherent culture in modern society.
