These two categories are derived from Kenneth Frampton: Modern Architecture, a critical history (London: Thames & Hudson 1980; 2nd edn 1985) pp. 9-10. Frampton juxtaposed ‘kitsch vernacular’ with ‘reductionism’ in which ‘the split between architecture and urban development has led to a situation in which the possibility of the former contributing to the latter and vice versa…has suddenly become extremely limited…[because of] the rationalisation of both building types and methods.’

The reserve units of the Swiss army—in effect the entire adult male population—form local militias who usually train in community facilities which they subsidise. The modification in this case was the colour of the linoleum floor, which would have been required to be in olive drab instead of bright green.

Notice in particular the lowering of roof of the apse to accentuate the wall of the church in the piazza.

The light-hoods may also be derived from Le Corbusier’s Venice Hospital project (1965).
