Architect of Postwar Europe Was a Fascist Who Hated Jews

Lauded Swiss-French designer Le Corbusier has been outed as a “very clear”, “out-and-out Fascist” who wrote hateful articles about Jews and praised Nazi leader Adolph Hitler for his “great work” in Europe.

One of the most prominent architects of the postwar world, Le Corbusier inspired the wholesale demolition of inner cities to build concrete tower blocks, but continues to be revered and respected by town planners and architects, who admire his authoritarian plans and grand schemes. Today he has been revealed as a crypto-fascist, who despite efforts to hide his politics was an active part of the French fascist Vichy government.
