"Le Corbusier was the sort of relentlessly rational intellectual that only France loves wholeheartedly, the logician who flies higher and higher in ever-decreasing concentric circles until, with one last, utterly inevitable induction, he disappears up his own fundamental aperture and emerges in the fourth dimension as a needle-thin umber bird."
- Tom Wolfe From Bauhaus to Our House.
The book is a small hyper-critical and sardonic 100 page easy-read regarding the history and role of architectural movements from 1920s-1970s (Bauhaus, International Style, Postmodernism, etc).
Worth reading, takes two days.
