Albert Speer

Albert Speer was appointed by Hitler himself to be the chief architect of the third Reich. Speer was young at the time and shared a close relationship with Hitler, because he was able to communicate Hitlers ideas, since Hitler wasn't very good at drawing up plans or ideas. Personally, I don't really support what Speer did for Nazi Germany, but his work was very successful. He came up with the ruin theory that stated that ruins were to stay in ruin so that they could show off historical precedence. I agreed with him on that one, because if the Greeks or Romans did not leave ruins behind them, then we wouldn't have much to learn from them afterwards.
