Postmodern icon becomes England’s youngest landmarked building
http://www.curbed.com/2016/12/1/1379...isted-landmark



I feel old, now there is a Grade II* historically listed building younger than me But I can't say it doesn't deserve its listing. To ever demolish or alter it would be a disgrace.

I'm not into postmodernist architecture, but this is one nice, interesting and cute building, so I'm glad that is going to be preserved and not demolished.

I used to hate this style but I realized it was only the poor quality crap you find in East Europe or the North American suburbs that I disliked. The ones by actual architects using real materials can be great.

I don't see any reason why it should be regarded as a good architectural style

The ironic fun it adds to architecture is one of the biggest reasons, I'd say. Also 80s and 90s architecture is almost exclusively postmodern, so as a historic style it is important. 'Good' is subjective, but there's no denying the impact postmodernism has on the architectural world. For that reason alone there should be a greater effort to preserve these buildings.

I don't know. In my opinion, architecture shouldn't be funny or funky or happy in a very obvious way. In any case, postmodernism is enormously better when it takes the same direction examples as Liberty Place in Philadelphia took. In my opinion its sobriety and elegance are overwhelming.
