Postmodernism: Uses of Language in Architecture 4/5
Date: Wednesday 25 May 1977
Venue: Art Net
Tracing the historical background to the emergence of postmodernism, Robert Maxwell examines a broad series of built and unbuilt architectural and urban projects. Maxwell then narrows his focus to the topic of housing, analyzing contemporary design obsessions such as the contemporary paranoia manifested in finding the 'right image' for a house or the 'right shape' for urban planning.
