I get murderously angry when I see modernism.

As do I. "Modern" architecture is an eyesore, with very few exceptions.

If you want it different, pay for it.

This contrast has infinitely more to do with advancements in technology, the need and desire to build taller and as quickly and safely as possible, and all for the lowest cost possible.

How would you describe American architecture? Victorian looking?

Government buildings are usually in a Roman style.

Older homes, 1800-1930, are usually a mix between Victorian and Neo-Classical. This is in my little slice of America though.

The English tradition is for spires. Sir Christopher Wren was a mason who took a liberty and got away with putting a roman catholic dome on St Paul’s

Agree with the point of the post though, most of the modern structures are just soulless boxes

Playing devil's advocate, but Asian traditional architecture kind of blows. Go through one winter in a drafty, leaky Chinese house or spend a rainy season in a funky Chinese office and you'll be glad for modern architecture. Doesn't mean they couldn't put some of their style into new architecture, but there's no way in hell you could maintain traditional buildings for any decent period of time.

Many japanese buildings are a thousand years old and are earthquake resistant. Asians were quite good at architectute. Only niggers cant do shit.
