"From most indications Europe of tomorrow is going to be a different place to be economically and socially. One can only safely assume that the environment and architecture will reflect those changes or, will invoke their own Until recently we used to think that modern architecture had no country. Also, preserving what we had architecturally and environmentally -heritage, tradition- was the correct approach, therefore new architecture in distinct environments needed to be contextual. On the other hand, architecture is largely known as the ambassador of a culture. Although the international corporate clients are not very different between the European, American and Asian Metropolises, the resurgences of ethnic identities all over Europe -and the world- and the recurrent desires to bridge the discontinuity between technology and the historic origins of place begin to define a different arena of ideas and actions. Such current contradictions blur definitions in an era where cross-cultural polinations become the norm. What might happen in the future of possible cultural mass migrations in Europe? Would, say, parts of Greece be infused with an inherently Northern European spirit -if and when some kind of colonization occurs- of architectural vocabulary and view of nature and the landscape? How would being in a Greek town environment differ from a potential Greek town elsewhere. outside the conventional Greek borders or even from a greek-theme development (ie. Disneyworlds - a phenomenon of the '90's- in the US, Europe and Japan can be quick in (re) -producing ethni-theme parks). The discourse is applicable throughout the continent and needless to say- not limited to Eurocentric traditions. Topophilia versus ethnocentrism, local conditions versus trans-national markets and other "de-stabilizing "factors will be the new dynamics on the European landscape, while the primarily "linear" evolution in Europe may be replaced by a "nodal" evolution not unlike the one observed in the US. Navigating through terms of treacherous connotations one needs to define certain essential properties of culture and expression in space. This paper lies somewhere between being a critical speculation and a manifesto. It reflects on the potential implications of future mixed populations on the urban and rural environment and suggests their potential for architectural strategies. The American example of environments created and inhabited by various social and ethnic groups offers a point of departure and reference on contemporary and existing environments of cultural "grafting" with their present or suggested impact. The case study of Manhattan serves as an adventurous springboard for launching these ideas."
