The debates on ornament have reignited. As the digital age dawns, ornament — the very thing that modernity attempted to abolish at the beginning of the machine age — is making a comeback in architecture, design, and art. Opinions diverge when it comes to ornament, but less in the sense of taste than that the central questions of design crystallise on it. - But how does it now differ from machine ornament and classical ornament?
