Corb caning

edited November 2009 in architecture
Theodore Dalrymple sure doesn't like Le Corbusier.

[via archinect]

Entertaining OTT reading. He doesn't like modernism (and concrete) at all, and Corb is the architect who should shoulder the blame for all that followed him. He was incompetent, did only "appalling work", was obsessed with fast cars, probably had Asperger's, and "was the enemy of mankind". Architects only like him today because of a "totalitarian temptation."

Prince Charles will no doubt find this article useful.

    yes.
    Not saying boxed up ghettos is good but better than
    leaving the masses in the slums of Paris.

    Theres more to it than hairstyles.

    Dalrymple is an underachiever.

    Dalrymple and HD should buy the original not the abundant fakes.

    ^^
    The dopey dunny profile would be a collectors item now.

    Eileen Gray left E1027 and Cap Martin in 1932 according to this summary.. http://www.irish-architecture.com/tesserae/000007.html

    Then Corb's colonisation could begin.

    But Dalrymple ain't ranting about Corb the swimmer, though it does seem he was incompetent at that.
  • edited 2:21AM
    Yep HD you're probably bang on about Corb's last squint.
    E1027 is at bottom right.
    Corb's local beach is at the top.
    I love this Bing maps thing, even if it is Microsoft's.
