Modern and Minimalist or Traditional?

Commenter Mark wrote about the book review of Prefabulous and Sustainable

"Most people are not interested in living in a home that looks like a chocabloc collection of shipping containers. Treehugger rarely shows any of those homes and thus perpetuates the prefab boxy stereotype."

It's true. I love modern design and I love old houses. I just never understood why people want to make new ones that look like old ones. But should we show more of them if they are good models of green design?
