APOLOGY, please note:

This blog is still under construction. We do not wish to publish it to search engines yet until we post a significant amount of information. Those who have just visited this blog by clicking links from other "architectural series" blogs or just surfed from Blogger itself, we apologize greatly and request for patience. We hope in due time all the blogs of architectural series will be helpful to all, especially for the architects.

Until then, please visit "architectural monographs" and "film and architecture" a subsection of "Architectural videos" which are relatively rich in content.

"A pre-eminently sane, lucid, and concise statement about the central issues, the key examples, and the notorious derilections of postmodernism. I feel a fresh wind blowing away the miasma coiling around the topic."--Ihab Hassan, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
"The most intellectually incisive, coherent and comprehensive meditation upon the history and significance of postmodernism that I have yet encountered."--Patricia Waugh, University of Durham
"Easily the best introduction to postmodernism currently available."--Hans Bertens, Utrecht University

Product Description
Postmodernism has become the buzzword of contemporary society over the last decade. But how can it be defined? In this highly readable introduction the mysteries of this most elusive of concepts are unraveled, casting a critical light upon the way we live now, from the politicizing of museum culture to the cult of the politically correct. The key postmodernist ideas are explored and challenged, as they figure in the theory, philosophy, politics, ethics and artwork of the period, and it is shown how they have interacted within a postmodernist culture.


1. The rise of postmodernism
2. New ways of seeing the world
3. Politics and identity
4. The culture of postmodernism
5. The ‘postmodern condition’
