Conversations on Postmodernism cover.jpg

Synopsis

In the late 1970s a new movement emerged in British architecture. Driven by a feeling that modern architecture had run its course, architects associated with what became known as postmodernism began to explore how architecture might once again draw from historical styles, re-engage with cities as they existed, and employ colour, symbol and decoration in ways that were meaningful and popular.

This book features interviews with eight figures associated with postmodernism, reflecting on the inspiration, ideas and influence of a pivotal moment in British architecture.

Featuring: Laurence Bain, Jeremy Dixon, Terry Farrell, Piers Gough and Rex Wilkinson, Charles Jencks, Edward Jones, John Outram and Michael Wilford.
