"Post-modernism comes of age" says Charles Jencks

Dezeen Wire:
 architectural theorist Charles Jencks has written a new article for Blueprint magazine about the resurgence of postmodern architecture over the past twenty years, during which time other commentators claim it has become defunct.

Jencks points to projects from the likes of Frank Gehry, Rem Koolhaas, Herzog & de Meuron and Santiago Calatrava as demonstrative of the continuing influence of postmodern ideas, which he claims have led to "the explosive growth in iconic buildings and landmark sculptures."

The V&A is currently hosting an exhibition of postmodern architecture and design and you can see all of our stories on postmodernism here.
