are these
architectural forms
dated or timeless?

I was recently having a debate about this. I feel modern streamlined architecture is reaching that "classic" design point. We are at the point where early 1900's De Stijl - 1950-70's ranches are old enough that the styles don't look dated and can be termed a classic design style. When the bones are good, the bones are good...and these bones are GOOD.

awww, I love Corbusier! I have a fantastic book called From Bauhaus to your house...he is a frequent contributor....sweet one liners about design. Love it!

I agree that the early contemporary designs are becoming classics. I am thinking as well of some of the wrap around ranches with wings opening to courtyards. Seeing more & more people going contemporary.
