A DISTINCTLY new tendency is apparent ins architectural
,jthought and design today. Architects are designing in
masses -the great silhouette, the profile of the building has
become of far greater importance than its detail.
There is a new vigor and ruggedness evcn in buildings which are conven-
tionlally classic in their detail. Masses mount upward, supporting the tower,
accentuating its height. The new architecture is tending toward greaj. struc-
tares rather than multiplicity of detail.
Certainly mnodern invention-modern engineering skid~ and organization,
will prove more than equal to the demands of the architecture of the future.
