Modern town planning as the towers-in-the-park urbanism of Le Corbusier continues to be the model for high-density living in cities across the world from Africa, to the Middle East to Asia.  The success of this model lies in its ability, as intended, to produce “maximum economic efficiency” through standardization and rationalization of the building process in order to satisfy the “material” demands of people. Over the course of the century, the priorities of modern architecture changed from an ethic that emphasized the need for modern architects to satisfy the “material” needs of people in the first half of the twentieth century to one that emphasized satisfying the “spiritual” needs of people at and after the mid-century.  I argue that the shift in emphasis from physical to spiritual needs also changed a parallel discourse about the commons.  While emphasizing the need for modern architects to satisfy the “material” needs of people, the discourse about the commons focused on the issue of the physical “resources” of air and earth, and the “commonality,” as defined by the Seoul Biennale of making; while emphasizing the need to satisfy the “spiritual” needs of people the discourse about the resource commons ceased as the discourse shifted to the “commonalities” of connecting, moving, sharing.  Not in this discourse of modern architecture, but now part of the discourse of contemporary practices was a consideration of the” resource commons” of fire/energy and water and the “commonalities” of recycling and sensing.  This paper is based on the premise that by recognizing the continuities and discontinuities of the aims and discourse of modern architecture as they relate to the commons the better understanding we will have of emerging discourse and practices.
