These and other questions E. Michael Jones attempts to answer in The Logos of Architecture and Its Opponents. The book focuses primarily on the work and motivations of three architects: Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry, and Phillip Johnson in an adventure through an inferno of asymmetry, disproportion and chaotic ugliness with Jones serving as an interpretive guide. It's not just ugliness that is on the tour however, as Jones contrasts subversive postmodern architecture with classical ideals from ancient Greece which align with the Catholic faith of Thomas Gordon Smith, an architect who is reviving the classical style. Ultimately the book is a bold but interesting interpretation of the relationship between ideas and art with a theological appraisal at the end. I recommend this book for anyone interested in why bad architecture exists.
