Traditional Church Buildings Favoured Among Unchurched

As I have mentioned before - I subscribe to the journal Touchstone and I am a big fan. In each edition there is a section that contains little "snippets" of news of the Church from around the world. Here is one that caught my attention:
"Unchurched people prefer traditional church buildings to contemporary buildings, and over half said that the style of building would affect their response to visiting a new church, found a study by the Southern Baptist agency LifeWay. Those aged 25-34 were notably more inclined to the traditional church building than the average, while those over 70 were notably less inclined."
How interesting! Are you surprised? Any ideas as to why this may be?
