An account of the great European æsthetic disaster

Anyone interested, writes Dalrymple,

in the ideological foundations, as well as the effects, of architectural modernism

should read James Curl’s Making Dystopia: The Strange Rise and Survival of Architectural Barbarism (2018). Dalrymple calls the work

a magisterial and to me unanswerable account of one of the greatest æsthetic disasters to have befallen Europe in all its history.
