Looking beyond the dogmas handed down by the apologists of the 1930s, 1950s, and 1960s, the writer seeks to understand what the protagonists of modernism really thought, wrote, and did. He discusses the founding texts of the Modern Movement, including the writings of Le Corbusier, one of the founders of modernist architectural theory.
