The Story of Post-Modernism: Five Decades of the Ironic, Iconic and Critical in Architecture by Charles Jencks

Regular price £29.99

In The Story of Post-Modernism, Charles Jencks, the expert on Post-Modern architecture and culture, provides the essential account of Post-Modern architecture from its earliest beginnings in the 60s to the present day. By dividing the narrative into seven key chapters, which are both chronological and overlapping, Jencks maps out the ups and downs of the movement, the comings and goings of various ideas and different themes. 

The book is particularly visual and in addition to providing a chronological account of the movement, each chapter puts a spotlight on the major works of a specific period. As the first up-to-date account of Post-Modern Architecture, this book will prove to be absolutely key. This engaging narrative will appeal to students who are new to the subject, as well as those who can remember the high points in the 70s and 80s.
