Thank you for the stunning picture.

I do appreciate the irony in you appreciating post-modern architecture while rejecting its theories of truth. Though one wonders - can a post-modern aesthetic be separated from a post-modern view of truth? In order to appreciate post-modern architecture does one need to embrace some of the tenets of postmodernism (broadly construed)?

There is no irony. Gehry denied being postmodern. Moreover, what I critique of postmodernism is principly its view of truth, not all its aesthetic manifestations, although I do refute aesthetic relativism in a chapter in my Truth Decay.
