That Postmodern Moment!

December 22, 2022

Long ago and far away Postmodernism reigned. Join architectural historian Matt Postal for an illustrated Municipal Art Society talk that considers its impact on 1980s New York City and how recent events are reshaping its stylistic legacy. Often colorful and sometimes cartoonish, see how trailblazing projects (and interiors) by such leading architects as Philip Johnson, Kevin Roche and Helmut Jahn, among others, changed the trajectory of 20th century architecture.
