Le Corbusier's Ideal Savage

“Primitive man, has halted his chariot he has decided that here shall be his home ground. He chooses a clearing and cuts down the trees that crowd it in; he levels the ground about it; he makes a path to the stream or to the settlement of his fellow tribesman which he has just left... this path is as his tools, his hands, and his time will let him make it”- Le Corbusier
