What’s wrong with 21st century architecture?

Once again Will Self has managed to perfectly sum up my feelings on a subject. This time, 21st century architecture…

Too much airy embellishment, too many wave-form roofs, too many great expanses of curved glass parametrically wrapped around hideous atria […] It doesn’t look like it will turn out to be anything much, but then nothing in the built environment nowadays looks like anything much.
