El Mito Moderno. Una Lectura Breve con una Reflexión Crítica
Modern Myths: Who cares very much about lifts, light, heating, even privacy, when he feels that he does not belong where he is forced to reside, when he is always seeking his identity in a place where he cannot find it...? But one thing that architecture should not do is to fabricate for themselves the myth of the purely "modern" man, the man with ever new and ever changing needs, the man for whom the one vital need -the need to ffel at one with his surroundings- has been somehow mysteriously abolished. It is precisely the moral significance of architecture that makes the moralism of the Modern Movement so distasteful
