Information Architecture: Form, Function, and Design

Thinking today of how the structure and organization of information could have parallels in modernist thinking--lack of ornamentation, efficiency , and the slippery notion of purity. Additionally, how might the principles of design (Balance, Proportion, Rhythm, Emphasis, Unity) apply or not to IA. Maybe there's a paper in this. I'm sure pieces of this type of thinking have been done, but I'm not sure if the thesis has been completely investigated. If you know of something, please feel free to comment. Thanks!
