We are witnesses of times in which architecture as a discipline is being transformed under the influence of the forces of a new globalized reality. In spite of the undeniable power of globalization and the multiplication of generic architecture, local circumstances modify its influence. Peripheral milieux are more resilient by their nature and react slower, so the consequences of globalization in construction often turn out as naïve distortions or in some fortunate exceptions, as works of authors retaining authenticity and a critical attitude.
