TEXT/PLAIN (32 lines)
        Oops.  I just read my response under this subject.  Make that Le
Corbusier's *Pour une nouvelle architecture,* not Gropius's.  The Swiss Le
Corbusier never participated in the Bauhaus, although both architects'
biographies share striking similarities, especially a profound influence
from functional industrial architecture (especially American) of the early
twentieth century.  Le Corbusier's treatise on modern architecture became
one of the scared texts of modernism, the Bauhaus, especially under Mies
van der Rohe as the Bauhaus became more architecure-oriented, adhering to
its basic tenets.

        I have been in the scholastic profession long enough to know
        that nobody  enters it  unless he has  some very good reason
        which he is anxious to conceal.
