6. Interpretation of Tradition
Chapter 5 alluded to the issue of the need to develop appropriate styles of metal gate as a response to modern need for wider and more robust access to fields, farms, etc. This implies the need to understand how tradition can be adopted to meet the demands of the present, as exemplified by a wooden style of gate executed in metal and a modern bus shelter. Both examples illustrate that tradition and modernity are not incompatible.
