Recently, there has been serious concern expressed over the fact that traditional architectureâ€™s language, its system of representation and indeed, its technology are excluded from the industrial future and hence from training, due to modern technology. Consequent upon this, the immense capital know â€“ how held by building â€“ related craft-trades, is disparaged as a pre- industrial and historical phenomenon and, as such banned from technical training and economic practice and retained merely as a subject for archaeology and arts and craft history courses. Thus, we are faced with a scandalous reduction in the productive capacities of society as a whole and with the radical impoverishment of basic democratic choices relating to vocations and trades and, generally, with the means of human self â€“expression. This study, therefore, seeks to establish the authenticity or otherwise of these allegations against modern technology. In doing this, a careful study was made of the developments in architecture with respect to its historical antecedents, specifically from the pre- World War 2 to the modern architectural era, 1945 till date.
