  8. 8. CAN POST-MODERNISM BE DEFINED History of Architecture - II (AP-313) – Postmodernism
  9. 9. WHAT COULD BE POST-MODERNISM “Defining our world today as Post-Modern is rather like defining women as ‘non-men’. It doesn’t tell us very much, either flattering or predictive. All it says is what we have left – the Modern world, which is paradoxically doomed, like an obsolete futurist, to extinction. And there is another linguistic puzzle. How can the world be Post-Modern, magically preserved like some creature in Alice in Wonderland, beyond the present tense? Do we inhabit only the past, or future.” ~ Charles Jencks (1987) History of Architecture - II (AP-313) – Postmodernism
  10. 10. WHAT COULD BE POST-MODERNISM “*Postmodern+movements show to some degree that double aspect of the term: -They are, at once, a continuation of Modernism and its transcendence. - they accept the irreversible nature of the modern world and modernization, but deny this cuts us off from the pre-modern past, and this past is as much a part of the present as any aspect of the twentieth century.” ~ Charles Jencks (1987) History of Architecture - II (AP-313) – Postmodernism
  11. 11. WHAT COULD BE POST-MODERNISM Transcending Modernism Continuing Modernism No Elitism Architecture as Public Art Intellectual product for those who understand Dual Coding History of Architecture - II (AP-313) – Postmodernism
  12. 12. WHAT COULD BE POST-MODERNISM “Post-modern Architecture is doubly coded, half-Modern and halfconventional, in its attempt to communicate with both the public and a concerned minority, usually architects” ~ Charles Jencks (1987) History of Architecture - II (AP-313) – Postmodernism
  13. 13. WHAT COULD BE POST-MODERNISM Modern – Latin , MODO ~ “Just Now” History of Architecture - II (AP-313) – Postmodernism
  14. 14. WHAT COULD BE POST-MODERNISM “A work can become modern only if it is first postmodern. Postmodernism thus understood is not modernism at its end but in the nascent state, and this state is constant” ~ Jean François (1979), ‘The Postmodern Condition’ History of Architecture - II (AP-313) – Postmodernism
  15. 15.
