Tear them down

by multilinko
There is a delightful irony in the fact that advocates for modernist architecture are having to band together to save examples of it from the wrecking ball. The architects of these buildings themselves had no compunction about remaking the face of cities, razing historic streetscapes to make way for their glass and concrete erections. They never cared for the wishes of ordinary people. Believing they had a monopoly on taste, they forced their will and their often brutal vision on communities.
