The Shoe House is not postmodern. It's very classic Roadside architecture, meant to get cross-country drivers interested and stop. It's in the same vein as the Coffee Pot in Bedford, Pennsylvania, or Carhenge in Alliance, Nebraska, etc.

That isn't postmodern. It's called novelty architecture, a category of its own, that appeared in the 19th century already, and trended esp. with the omnipotence of the automobile.


"Novelty architecture is a type of architecture in which buildings and other structures are given unusual shapes for purposes such as advertising or to copy other famous buildings without any intention of being authentic. Their size and novelty means that they often serve as landmarks. They are distinct from architectural follies, in that novelty architecture is essentially usable buildings in eccentric form whereas follies are non-usable, ornamental buildings often in eccentric form.

Although earlier examples exist, such as the planned but never completed Elephant of the Bastille, generally the style became popular in the United States and spread to the rest of the world as travel by automobile increased in the 1930s. The Statue of Liberty in New York is a replica building that is part sculpture and part monument, which like many subsequent examples of novelty architecture, has an accessible interior and became a tourist attraction.

Constructing novelty architecture near to roads became one way of attracting motorists to a diner, coffee shop, or roadside attraction, so buildings were constructed in an unusual shape, especially the shape of the things sold there."

If I remember correctly, the first postmodern building should be the Venturi house, built in 1964. Said that, I don't think it's strange to see a link in a lot of architecture built before proper postmodernism. For instance, the church of Bernard Maybeck with industrial windows, elements of japanese architecture and other styles could not be considered an example of a similar phylosophy?

Well, after all, the development of architecture is just as fluid and organic as all other arts. There's hardly a tough break from one style to another, they will always melt and develop different expressions.

Wasn't sure whether to post Hugh Casson's Ismaili Centre in London here or in the brutalism thread. Designs from the late 70s tend to be a mix of both.

I don't really like the exterior, but the interior looks great. Looks as if a classical arabic architect had studied modern trends and resources and adapted his classical designs and traditions to it (which is what all architects should do by the way). That floor in the 10th pic and that roof in the 11th pic are amazing evidence of it, plus the furniture looks very elegant.

Typical example of form being developed for its own sake instead of following function. I wonder if I'll ever learn to appreciate this particular movement.
