Is no one willing to say that Frank Gehry’s architecture is intrinsically odious and that, in juxtaposition to Princeton’s Gothic theme, it is particularly hideous? I visit the campus infrequently these days and, when I do, I am struck by the awful accumulation of truly ugly buildings that have been erected in the past 40 years. The Gehry-designed Lewis Library simply adds another eyesore to the list.
