"I’m an architect, and I’ve designed buildings all over the world. Every time I get a commission in an emerging market, I get excited about the opportunity to draw from the country’s heritage, culture, and art. But the client never wants it. They all want the same thing: ‘modern style, modern style, modern style.’ Everything has to be high and glassy. It’s almost as if everyone wants to hide their differences. It’s boring."

Mmmmm ok. Two thoughts:
1. If clients want their building to reflect their country’s heritage, maybe they will bring their project to a local architect who’s familiar with their heritage/visual traditions instead of white guys in their 60s at New York-based firms
2. There are ways to design a modern, high, glassy building that also draws on vernacular design elements. Case in point: the stepped pagoda design and Ruyi elements on Taipei 101 and the stellate shape of the Petronas Towers, which is based on Islamic iconography. These are not obscure examples.
