Description

An illuminating look at a controversial architectural style – and its finest examples

Post-modernism was the 1980s’ counter to Brutalism but similarly fell out of fashion until its best buildings began to disappear. Now is the time to reassess its values. Historians Geraint Franklin and Elain Harwood discuss its background and key architects before celebrating Britain's finest examples. Individual entries are beautifully illustrated, many with new photography, including the SIS Building made famous by James Bond, John Outram’s awe-inspiring pumping station and Judge Institute in Cambridge, and the late works of James Stirling and Michael Wilford, including No.1 Poultry – an extraordinary corner of the City that in 2016 became England’s youngest listed building.

This is the perfect book for anyone with an interest in architecture at a time when this fascinating architectural style gets an honest appraisal.

  • The first accessible book on Postmodern architecture for a British audience.
  • Written by Elain Harwood, author of England's Post-War Listed Buildings.
  • Packed with stunning photography throughout.
