Dan, If you want to understand why Modernist architecture is so ugly and why the architects didn't respect the opinions of "ordinary people" you need to watch the hugely influential THE FOUNTAINHEAD (1949) staring Gary Cooper. It is based on (((Ayn Rand's))) novel and she wrote the screen play. Drawing on her own Jewish sensibility as being the superior outsider who is hated by the masses but is so superior to them that she hates them, she projected this onto the live of an architect who refused to compromise his vision of inhuman ugly architecture. This film was one of the most influential movies for architects after the war. They all wanted to be Howard Roark. You can watch it here:
