Hughes in full flight
BBC2 have been rerunning the wonderful Robert Hughes series, Shock of the New from 1980. Do catch the brilliant one on architecture, Trouble in Utopia. Hughes single-handedly dismantles the over hyped and pretentiousness that surrounded the high priests of modernist architecture with their total disregard for people.
And he shows the dreadful legacy of their over inflated egos. It is a tour de force in critical rhetoric and a joy to hear if you sync with his views. See it here. while it is still on iPlayer.
