On the other hand, some styles that were considered ground-breaking in their day are now despised, like Brutalism and some of Le Corbusier's ideas for urban planning (ie, nobody goes to Paris to see the suburbs beyond Le Perpherique).
Those movements are still highly regarded in art circles...and is still considered a genius.. Tourist visiting Paris usually want to see La Belle Epoch everywhere... But Corbusier wasn't designing to attract tourists, but as expressions of art and design...
Graves buildings were designed with a playful colorful aesthetic and a massive scale...Meant to be eye catching and a bit provocative...I remember in the 90s thinking the old tomorrowland looked stale...Amazing how years later we yearn for that and see the genius of John Henchman's clean modern styling.

OK, let me rephrase that... the suburbs outside of Le Perpherique aren't exactly desirable real estate for residential living either.

Plan Voisin would have torn that sort of stuff down for rows of towers like a New York City housing project.
