Maybe they will help me to see things extremely far away*, like utopian visions of massive housing projects overtaking the world's cities. If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's likely you need to see the world through the eyes of an architect, albeit a visionary one in love with massive concrete structure like Le Corbusier. One blogger thinks, like me, that parts of Hong Kong have already taken Corbu's advice to heart. Perhaps I'm only, then, continuing the tradition.
Here's an illustration of Corbu's ideas about the "natural evolution" of cities towards his massive urban planning ideals (circa 1935) :
Good bye, small scaled urban fabric. Hello, monumentality.
More elaboration soon...
