con·tem·po·rar·y

1. living or occurring at the same time.

2. belonging to or occurring in the present.

How the hell did you come to the conclusion that contemporary is a buzzword? If anything its the proper name for current architecture. Every architectural movement you named is historical, thus the name. Can't have a name that sums up the movement if it hasn't run its course yet can you?

All the designs were done probably done for free, like every other architectural competition, so I agree that they are shit, but your complete ignorance of the realities of the projects just to put down the post doesn't help anybody.
