Sexual Architecture??

The Khajuraho Temples (circa 950-1150 AD) happened chronosomatically when the plane of the present sliced through the ovaries, hence manifesting an architecture of high fertility. Can there still be an architecture where the fertile imagination is utilized with such profundity?

Check out Le Corbusier's 1958 International Planning Competition for Berlin as a kind of (bombastic?) 'modern' antidote to Speer's plan. This plan had an effect on both Krier and Stirling. (Remember that Krier worked with Stirling in early 1970s).

Hitler's Words Into Stone. Can architecture itself be fascist?
from "Vorwarts , Kameraden...
In a bitter discussion of the German Werkbund in Darmstadt in 1978, the Austrian architect Hans Hollein said, "Fortunately Hitler didn't have too pronounced a taste for Weinerschnitzel; otherwise they too would be forbidden in Germany today." In a similar manner Albert Speer explained to me that things would be going far better for classical architecture today if Hitler had been a fanatic for modern art.
After 1945, the Allied victors did not hesitate to take as spoils of war all the enemy's technical and industrial genius. The Riech's industrialists, technicians, and engineers were recieved with open arms in America, in France, and in Russia alike. They were able to work in the comfort of the most reputable institutions and firms in order to bring to fruition their most sinister research.
