"As far as I am concerned personally, I would like to admit the praises. Very beautiful letter of the corbusier defending with a vigour tinted with sufficiency the high principles of architecture. "Dear Monsieur Laprade, your student Gaubert came to submit to me the text of the booklet he plans to publish on architecture. I gave myself the trouble of reading it completely and told him that I fully accepted the principle of expressing the difficult technical things that we are dealing with in a youthful way, "young man", able perhaps to make the elders understand, the commitment and enthusiasm of young people to the construction of a new world. I have made very precise observations, solemn even about the lightness with which (apart from his youthful presentation) he addresses the reality of the problems themselves: fundamental error of urban planning, frivolity of his analyses of constructive systems carried out by highly valuable colleagues, etc.Hermant of today's architecture, to which Gaubert proposed his manuscript, came to find me and told me his concern to see so slightly before the opinion of such serious questions. I was able to see that Gaubert had contented himself in his manuscript with tiny alterations, thus proving his absolute lack of scruples, his unconsciousness in reality. Gaubert plans to make himself a springboard of the work of others. As far as I am concerned personally, I would like to admit the praises (it changes the shouts) but that these are simply the result of a serious and scrupulous presentation. Gaubert gives me the effect of singularly lacking modesty and scruples.
His work will not be useful to the cause, but harmful, in the state of inaccuracies in which he admits to leaving it. As he refers to your great friendship, and my advice has remained a dead letter, and at the end of the day I judge his kindnesses for me, dangerous as well, I thought I would ask you to advise him to reflect again and to measure that his responsibilities are not only to his very person, but to the loyal and hard effort of all those so many who have brought to architecture for 40 years the purest of themselves. I am sure that you will understand me and I beg you to believe, dear Monsieur Laprade, in my best feelings.
