Ok Gandhi was Indian and a politician so he could be the odd one out but then he was an idealist and so was corb... corb and Johnson were Modernists but I don't know much about cook and I'm not sure what Gandhi's stance would have been on Modernism... three are dead and one is still alive?? Oh I give up! (",)BTW love the title of your blog!

Well... they all had their utopic visions except for Mr J, who said he was in it for the money and status. But I'm indeed post rationalising - a trick question; none of the above (much more trivial), I just liked the fact that they are all united by their quintessentially architectural old-school spectacles...cheers!

Haha.. I did think about the glasses but then I thought "no-one else could be so trivial"!!! (",)

I very much doubt Gandhi can be tought to have any "utopic vision" - the man was little short of being a racist in many ways.

Racist? Perhaps. Although I know not enough about him or his context to partake in that debate, to be honest... and by most accounts Mr Johnson was allegedly a fascist, but that wasn’t the point. I suppose I should have italicized 'their'; after all, Hitler described his vision of the new Reich in Mein Kampf as his utopia - I guess utopic ideals are entirely subjective if you're into morale relativity, that is. But then, he didn’t wear round specs 8)
