Look no further! Get this book ‘Postmodern Architecture: Less is a Bore’ by Owen Hopkins
“This unprecedented book takes its subtitle from Postmodernist icon Robert Venturi’s spirited response to Mies van der Rohe’s dictum that ‘less is more’. One of the 20th century’s most controversial styles, Postmodernism began in the 1970s, reached a fever pitch of eclectic non-conformity in the 1980s and 90s, and after nearly 40 years is now enjoying newfound popularity.”
He celebrates more than 200 buildings from Britain and around the world, built mostly in the Eighties and Nineties, that are distinguished by their vivid nonconformity.
London buildings that get a mention include Charing Cross station, the MI6 Building at Vauxhall and Portcullis House next to Parliament.
A great collection that is sure to inspire!
