Charles Jencks Postmodernism And The New Synthesis-clip_1122

Subclip

Charles Jencks continues his discussion on postmodern classicism by describing the later evolution of the movement and how its ideas evolved through the Seventies. He describes the Dusseldorf and Stuttgart museum projects of James Stirling, and Michael Graves’ Portland Buildings as prime examples of the move toward semantic investigation of the object, playful site investigation, use of clich?s for clarification, and low cost construction. This clip ends before Jencks finished the lecture.
