Architecture, the expression of the materials and methods of our times

Corb writing for Architectural Record in 1929, not a lot changes.

We still permit our houses to lie close to a damp and unhealthy ground. We are still discussing whether or not our houses are to have roofs, while roof gardens bring health, joy, and an upheaval of plan replete with magnificent liberties. We are still building our houses of stone, with massive walls, while light and slender cars are speeding at sixty miles an hour through snows or under the tropical sun. We are still employing masons and carpenters on the job, to work in rain or snow, or fair weather, while factories could turn out to perfection that which we accept poorly executed. And so forth and so on.
