The engineer is an inseparable part of the Modern Movement. He has fulfilled its request of working unprejudiced. But he was driven to his most magnificent works by a mental concentration on technique excluding many other influences. Therefore, John Ruskin called the engineer a human beaver. Rarely the ambition of synthetic Modernism to suspend the difference between culture and civilization was converted. In the writer’s opinion, this is no reason to abandon this ambition and engineers should keep up the Modern tradition and continue to work on it.
