An illuminating look at a controversial architectural style—and its finest examples.
Postmodern architecture, which emerged in the 1980s, has been much maligned—but in this book historians Elain Harwood and Geraint Franklin celebrate the genre with a fascinating discussion of its background and key concepts. Each lavishly illustrated entry focuses on what characteristics make the structure unique and provides information on the architect who created it. Eye-opening examples include No 1 Poultry, a London office building by James Stirling; the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery, designed by Robert Venturi; the striking TV-am studios in Camden; and the iconic SIS Building in central London.
