Charles Jencks The Language Of Modern Architecture-clip_1399

Charles Jencks argues that the harmony of modernism led to its eventual downfall, citing its reluctance to adapt to changing conditions of sensibilities and technologies. He describes Robert Venturi’s view of semantics and elemental syntax as a new social order of metaphors and signs. Jencks brings up Antoni Gaudi as a way of illustrating parallels between postmodernism and Art Nouveau, both operating outside of the language of reductivist modernism.
