The Architect as Totalitarian


An interesting article by Theodore Dalrymple in City Journal on the brutalist , totalitarian architect Le Corbusier .

We have been able to judge for ourselves how repellent this architecture has been . I didn't realise that it was ideologically totalitarian , though .

Like so much of the thought of the 20th Century , it makes no sense to we mere mortals .
