The article argues against blaming architect Le Corbusier, the father of the modern public housing buildings, for the riots in France. The banlieues, as they are known in France, became the hub of the country's pathologically poor and disenfranchised immigrant classes. Not only do the banlieues look nothing like what Le Corbusier intended, but the public housing he did construct are today considered some of the finest addresses in France.
