I too am working on a "theory" of architecture (style) that relates architecture to a "process" larger than architecture itself, that is, the notions that 1) human imaginations reenact corporal morphology and physiology, and 2) architecture (style) reenacts human imaginations. The main theory is called chronosomatics (meaning literally time + the body), and the primary text on chronosomatics is entitled The Timepiece of Humanity.
You ask: "What has 'metabolic process' have to do with it?" The metabolic process within humanity, and, more or less in all (animal?) life, is a creative-destructive duality wherein the corporal destruction of matter releases energy thus providing creative impetus. I theorize that the metabolic process is (just) one of the human physiologies reflected in human imagination, and, subsequently, the metabolic process becomes reflected in human activities and events. (Note: the other corporal physiologies like fertility, assimilation, osmosis, etc. also play key roles within human imagination, but the theory of chronosomatics suggests the metabolic process as being one particularly dominant in our times.)

"We use the term 'Stalinist architecture' to describe buildings concieved between 1933, the date of the final competition to design the Palace of the Soviets, and 1955, when the Academy of Architecture was abolished. A government decree was issued in the same year as the abolition. Entitled 'Measures for the further industrialization, improvement in quality and reduction in cost of construction', it marked the return of Soviet architecture to the modern movement.
"Between 1934 and his death in 1953, Stalin created and sustained an unwieldy system of repression. In such a tyranny, every element of society must be in the service of the state, and architects, although less effected than writers and artists, were no exception. To enable Stalin to implement his immense construction programme, prisoners were frequently exploited for forced labour. Prisoners (or zeks), working in huge numbers, built the most magnificent Stalinist works, from dams, locks, canals and skyscrapers to entire cities, with the most basic equipment. As his power increased, Stalin's own taste became law; his personal interference is evident in many surviving plans.
"Stalin's Russia was a nightmare of double standards and double thinking, when the simple aspirations of ordinary people could amount to crimes against the state.
Alexei Tarkhanov & Sergei Kavtaradze, Stalinist Architecture, 1992.
