A curated collection of Postmodern architecture in all its glorious array of vivid non-conformity

This unprecedented book takes its subtitle from Postmodernist icon Robert Venturi's spirited response to Mies van der Rohe's dictum that 'less is more'. One of the 20th century's most controversial styles, Postmodernism began in the 1970s, reached a fever pitch of eclectic non-conformity in the 1980s and 90s, and after nearly 40 years is now enjoying a newfound popularity. Postmodern Architecture showcases examples of the movement in a rainbow of hues and forms from around the globe.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book features some gleefully nonconformist postmodern architecture from around the globe."-Design Anthology

"Architecture fans are in for a treat."-Hypebeast

"[The book's] message of adaptability seems increasingly relevant to our ever-changing world."-Aesthetica magazine

"A celebration... The brasher the better... Postmodernist architecture has always been defined by playfulness... Today's architects have absorbed many of its lessons."-The Observer, The New Review

"For visual inspiration, look no further than Steve McCurry: India."-Forbes

"[McCurry] has set out to represent a genuine panorama of the fascinating country - encompassing its conflicts, vanishing cultures, rich tapestry of faiths, ancient traditions and contemporary culture - through images spanning his career. Highlights include a striking image of the red trains of West Bengal... and a portrait of a Sikh devotee praying at the Golden Temple. His work beautifully captures India's diversity and colour."-Psychologies magazine

"A true legend of contemporary International photography."-Digital Camera Magazine
