Changing into Hang Ten T-shirts, blue jeans and Reeboks after wearing IBM blue suits, white shirts and 14-pound wing-tips for a long time was an interesting experience back in 1975.
It was in Cal Poly Graduate School of Environmental Design that I discovered my interest in architecture. One of my first classes was the History of Environmental Design. Led by a very good professor, we traveled in time from the pyramids to modern architecture.
I well remember some of the buildings in this video about Le Corbusier. Note the use of plants in some of these buldings, many of them massive structures.
There's a lot more here about Le Corbusier if you're interested in his work.
