This seminar will explore the emergence of postmodern architecture in the US, looking at early examples of this genre from the late 1960s and stretching up to the present. We will analyze buildings and projects across the country and study examples by architects including David Adjaye, Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, and more.

What definitions emerged in regards to postmodernism in the context of architecture? This seminar hopes to answer this question as we look at examples drawn from commercial structures, residential projects, public and private museums, and more as we consider some of the key stylistic features of postmodern architecture and other competing and subsequent contemporary architectural genres as manifest in the US. Looking at "starchitects" as well as lesser-known figures, this conversation will explore the iconic along with the under-appreciated as we look at a comprehensive sampling of architecture from the last fifty years.

Led by an expert on modern and contemporary art and architecture, Jennie Hirsh, this interactive seminar will look at early instances of postmodernism and other contemporary architectural styles through a wide range of building types. Designed to inform curiosity and future travels, participants will come away with an increased awareness of contemporary architectural vocabulary in the last fifty years of architecture and urbanism.
