Will this generation bore deeper into refinement and elitism, or will it endeavor to spread classical architecture outwards to a broad, democratic, indeed populist future? Will they continue reprinting ever more esoteric treatises, or will they write new ones conceived to serve, not the 16th or even the 20th century, but the future which is upon us? How can there be a viable canon of architecture that is incapable of producing an opening wider than it is high. I propose a new ethos: one no longer dedication to the polishing of the classical canon of Vitruvius, Palladio and Vignola, but to supplementing that canon. An expanded canon would include newly drawn plates alongside Vignolas: the Orders of masters such as Gilly, Soane, Thompson, Garnier, Perret, Hoffman, Loos, Asplund, Piacentini, Terragni, Stern, Graves, Porphyrios and Rob Krier. This treatise would claim an enormous amount of new territory for classicism. We are almost there. We have only to climb one last Everest.
