Charles Jencks talks about metaphors, semantics, and syntax while describing late modern and postmodern architecture. He presents examples of early eclecticism. He describes the linguistic basis of the development of modern architecture through Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Jencks describes how symbolism and semantics, purged during the era of high modernism, revived during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
