This essay argues that an architecture that merely focuses on style, individual or historic, needs to redirect the focus to a contextual architecture that is sensitized to social, cultural and economic needs. Importantly, such a shift in focus may not be evident nor easy to maintain given that architecture is constituted of several dilemmas: a dilemma of style, a dilemma of ethnocentricity, a dilemma of non-linearity, a dilemma of change, and a dilemma of diversity.
