To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
De Botton is very clever. Or so he implies with all his books and his School of Life . But he clearly hasn't been to a decent art school. He seems to be trying to write a history of architecture - Ernst Gombrich wrote several great history of art books. But architecture history is not in any way parallel to art history, at least not in the 20th century, which is where Bottom starts. Villa Savoye is indeed a crucial turning point in architecture. But it's about the use of reinforced concrete in a residential building, and the new possibilities afforded by that medium. I think that Corbusier was a consultant for a concrete company at the time? And the Glass house by Johnson is about the use of....... Glass. This and the use of steel structures in skyscrapers allowed enormous new possibilities in domestic architecture. Culturally we were into efficiency and futurism and so the house as a machine was born. But Villa Savoye is about clean lines and sharp focus. Art at the time was about Expressionism and Dada. Almost the exact opposite. Through the ages architecture has been about the art of the possible, about technological limits and about capitalism and markets. Maybe there is a pretence at being about art, but even now Zaha Hadid, Foster etc are about making new wizzy shapes, more than about art. Maybe Tado Ando is about art. But he's also about a lot of concrete!
