We herald architectural achievements from every era and culture, but what of the failures? What can we learn from poorly planned cities, leaning towers, fallen bridges, and monster homes? We’ll critically examine Albert Speer’s failed designs for Nazi Germany to better understand Mies van der Rohe’s monoliths, and we’ll link problems with Montreal’s Habitat 67 to the rough treatment of Arthur Erickson’s Vancouver Law Courts. We’ll also consider the unchecked ego of Le Corbusier, the wild vision of unsteady gothic towers, and misguided attempts to build medieval castles in Canada.
