In an election year, you are treated (punished?) with list after list trying to set the stories straight about candidates or damage their credibility with dished dirt and facts and figures. Similar, but not political, is this piece from The Independent, “Seven Pillars of Le Corbusier,” who is about to have his fame nudged up a bit higher as the Royal Institute of British Architects gets set to mount a major exhibition about the already iconic architect. In the piece, they focus on the man himself, from his insane work ethic to his possibly being sex-starved. It’s a great batch of information on the starchitect-before-”starchitects”-was-a-term, seeing the profession in more of an artistic light than is usually the norm. If you consider yourself a fan, it’s strongly recommended reading.
