********************************************************  

Socrates said that the order of the city was the order of the soul writ large. That observation is all the more true today—and not a compliment to the modern soul or the modern city. Most people simply don’t advert to the quiet influence the surrounding architecture has on their psyche: the shape and scale of buildings, the order and proportion (or lack thereof). The father of modern Bauhaus architecture is the German Walter Gropius, a promiscuous cad who married a promiscuous shrew named Anna Mahler, wife of composer Gustav Mahler. Dr. E. Michael Jones, editor of Culture Wars magazine says that Gropius painted into his architectural vision a radically new kind of building and with it, a revolution in urban planning.

 

In this episode you will learn

  • The subtle (?) ways in which the architecture that surrounds us tells us who we are and what our life’s priorities ought to be
  • How Gropius’s rationalization of his own degeneracy got transmuted into buildings built purely for function, and ugly as sin besides
  • Why rebellion against Logos leads to disorder and chaos in the external design of things
  • What public housing Projects in Chicago, suburban Moscow, and industrial Poland have in common
  • Why classical architecture as nurtured by Catholic principles and sound philosophy can lead the way to beautify both home and church design
