Artists of any description can be as avant-garde or as safe as they want but they cannot influence the taste and choice of the consumer.
of course they can, they do every day…. what do you think fashion magazines… IKEA etc are all based around?? of course they influence the tastes and choice of consumers.
many architects can also be ‘avant guarde’ or ‘safe’, its a basic premise that defines difference practices…
architectural fashion can be as fleeting as any other type of art, which leaves us with dated buildings in our face 24/7, regardless of whether the designer is on a ‘list’ or not… the recent love affair with “the fold” will quickly become dated and gauche, in my opinion, and we will be left with these “signature” specimen buildings for years after they loose their immediacy.
