The Hellman Files #112

A trawl through Hellman’s archives, in which we uncover gems that are as relevant now as they were then

An on-line comment on one of my books described me as ‘a feminist woman Marxist’. As Groucho said,’Madam, flattery will get you everywhere.’

But it is self-evident that architects have always served rich power elites, the 1%, and always will. Ostrich-like we try not to confront this and maintain that architecture is ‘above’ politics. Cartoon from the AJ 06.06.73.
