Here is an essential criticism of LeCorbusier's visionary plan for the center of Paris which further links LeCorbuser to the origin of hip hop culture. In 1935 as The City of Detroit built the first federally funded housing development specifically for African Americans which was based on Le Corbusier's "Towers in The Park" scheme, they ignored a key criticism. I wish the government officials responsible we aware of the French architectural critic that took to the magazine, L’Architecte to warn the world of the sociological impact the towers would have on its' inhabitants.
After the commencement of construction in Detroit, other builders and cities took note and followed the dismal trail blazed through Detroit. Most notably, Robert Moses who also saw Le Corbusier's "Tower in The Park" model as a solution to providing displaced, low income residents with housing during his construction of the Cross Bronx Expressway. The criticism above is a prediction of hip hop, a culture disgusted with monotony, and birthed from these immense "geometrical barracks". So nearly 50 years prior to the start of hip hop, it was predicted as a response to the architectural design of public housing.
