https://www.firstthings.com/article/2019/06/crimes -in-concrete

Architecture. The soul of a city.

Since The Soviet Revolution & the Rise of the Fascist State, basically the late 19th-20th centuries, the Modernist Movement has altered the sky lines, beauty, attitudes, and demographic of cities.

In America it shows best in towers of unsurpassed ugliness. Filing cabinets for the poor. "The Projects", English Council Housing, Everything Soviet.

Entire multi block neighborhoods of family houses and empty factories, transformed into high rise apartments with government landlords.

( In Rochester ) Concrete bunkers with little insulation poured in illogical zig zags by local contractors unable to build higher by lack of skills to exceed a few stories altitude, ( which any medieval builder could best in education, skill, and esthetic sense ) Cold damp caves heated by electric baseboard heat. ( Because the Mayor's relatives that won the contracts were incompetent, and too over budget, for anything more efficient. ( the most expensive heat locally ) )

But few see the low leaky prison like barracks. The skyline is dominated by Towers!

But not lofty aspirations to reach the heavens. Dour, identical, concrete pillars. ( that look like filing cabinets for people ) or occasional piles of blocks inspired by a three year old's asymmetric pile abandoned when cartoons came on, and the Architect was excited by a not-a-rectangle anything.

And of course, elevators smelling of urine, crumbling concrete, unsafe stairs, a concentration of crime, and drifting garbage in the icy winds. ( or humid heat for the brief summers of rot & mildew )

And ugly. Seriously Ugly.

Politics in concrete. The speed of crumbling is in proportion to the level of corruption.

Russian housing famously is decaying as it's built. The more socialist, the uglier, the fastest decay.

The designer disliked by the author, above.

The Chair is the great example of a designers genius, IMHO. Simple? Silly? Nay! How comfortable you are and how obtrusive it is, it's the basic item in how you feel at the end of the day. Remember Archie Bunker? His Chair ( like my Father's ) was both haven, and statement of rank. It's a TV Trope, as well.

https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ThisIs MyChair

A few of the Le Corbusier chairs are fairly comfortable. The sling chair in particular, but it is really upscale camping equipment in unfolding, cold, pretentious leather & chrome. Fake luxury concealing lack of utility.

And all his designs have steel, toe hating, frame works that are hazards to live with, and often are just a classic club chair in a chrome plated cage.

In contrast!
https://www.dwr.com/designer-eero-saarinen?lang=en _US

Aside from the Tulip Table & chairs for dining, which is pretty but a pain, ( heavy hard to scoot swivel chairs and an obstacle under the table ) his stuff is elegant, comfortable, and sometimes impractical, but darn it, not a bit oppressive.

Yeah, I have some of his chairs & a table. I'm biased.

“Fake luxury concealing lack of utility.”

This is profound.

Sums up my thoughts on most of the “modern” architectural movement, and describes a great many things.

I was going to do a rant on furniture comfort and Marxism, but it would be so obvious & obscure at the same time.

Anecdote.

When I moved into my current house, ( first house that was solo adult mine, aka The Bank's ) I had the typical hand me down sofa & kitchen table, solid, but not chosen, and asked friends for more old chairs. An eclectic mix of old wood kitchen chairs almost all with the word Grandma in their history.

Weird, but useable, and I was resisting the college rental cable spool & beanbag solution. My friends and I struggle with that level of flexibility to escape them.

Then a buddy gave me 2 armless Thonet bentwood 1950's "Danish modern" chairs he'd bought at auction when they closed a local Nunery. Old Nun's Home?

Anyhoo. Now I had a theme. Jetsons! Aka scandahoovian Modern, aka 1950's futuristic.

Since I believe enthusiasm should be overdone, I set out to become expert in this stuff, and discovered 2 really obvious truths.

1. Furniture is expensive.
2. You HAVE to sit on something to tell if it's comfortable, and if you can nap on it.

Further research determined that IKEA makes one comfortable chair. I sat on all the different ones. Seriously. And the Poang is it.

Almost all the Future chairs, suck. Charles Eames & Eero Saarinen being apparently among the few that actually got the idea that humans were involved.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_and_Ray_Ea mes

Charles & Ray also did short films. Please watch...

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powers_of_Ten_(film)

I had to stop being a chair freak once I'd overloaded the house. : ) but I have a selection from Roman camp chairs to modern office.

My "that's mine" chair is a Saarinen office chair, bought used from an office liquidation house in Chicago, and re-upholstered locally with fresh foam & NOS Ray Eames "jacks" fabric a household member who sells antique fabric found for me.

I bought 2 other Eero office chairs for the Man Cave which were rebuild in a different comet pattern '50s material. ( same sources )

Everyone who visits looks at these bucket seats from Star Trek and is dubious. Then after trying, they all want one. Then I show them the current model.
https://www.dwr.com/workspace-chairs/saarinen-exec utive-armchair-with-casters/7211.html?lang=en_US#l ang=en_US&start=10

I've got about $500 go to in all three rebuilt chairs.

Le Corbusier was sort of a fabulist full of fascinating, expensive and showy ideas, so he would have agreed those concrete filing cabinet are towers ugly. But sadly, ugly skyscrapers are a fairly honest expression of modern corporate capitalism. It is who we are. At least you can put a nice inexpensive comfortable chair from IKEA in those ugly skyscrapers.
