From an early age (13) I have despised the international style of arch. personified by van der Rohe and Johnson, Ventura is a dog as well. Beyond a doubt it is UGLY, impersonal, and anti-human. All of these characteristics can also be applied to liberalism. Modern "art" is equally as quilty in debasing humanity.
Tom Wolfe wrote a scathing indictment of this arch. in "From Bauhaus to Our House" which, I think, changed the direction of arch. in a significant way.
