This paper connects the question of modern architecture to the general problematic of appearance. Apperance, itself, arises as a result of the debate on 'style' that marked architectural theory and practice in Germany in the first part of the nineteenth century. The problematic status of appearance should play a fundamental role in any assessment of claims about the autonomy of architecture. The project of the paper is to draw together these threads and thus delimit a specific locus of research.
