looking forward to JTA's red concrete number being published!
All the schemes are lovely! But wasn't Gort Scotts published already?
Comment on: It's time to question the classic Corb backstory
Interesting article, however Corb goes on about the Parthenon so much in 'Vers Une' that it's difficult to accept this revisionist hypothesis. Corb clearly admired the 'Sphinx-like' mosques of 'Stamboul' and his sketches showed his analytical appreciation of them. Fundamentally Corb was the opposite of architect like Hadid and Zumthor (much as I love them) who say they are inspired only by themselves. Corb was more like Siza who said 'to know architecture, is to know the work of other architects. Therein lies his greatness. This could apply to Palladio and Sinan too, who knew each other's work. Sometimes as architects we lack the ability to say 'this is not in line with my philosophy, but it's really good; therefore my philosophy is wrong!'
