^I used to hate it but after time I just started to get it. I think I mostly hated the cheap strip malls and suburban 90s office midrises it devolved into.

I still wonder what's so interesting about so many layers of pillars stacked on each other, right next to so much glass. The example from Japan is...hard to explain. The example from Switzerland has one of the most hideous roofs I've ever seen (low quality from every aspect).

The palladian arches on the roof don't really work, but I think it is otherwise a moderately pleasing and interesting building. It also manages to some degree to be different and playful without being completely whimsical like some of Kumas other postmodern work.

This whole page looks like the dark side of architecture thread. (excluding the example from New York).
What bothers me the most is the low quality of the materials which you can't spot even from a picture, who knows how awful the materials look in person.

I don't really understand postmodernism. I always thought it was this style of futuristic reinterpretations of art deco, but them I've seen some shapeless and/or colorful weird garbage being called postmodern as well? Some like Americas Tower or the good ol Liberty Place in Philly, are simply wonderful, but some other tacky cakes of colored concrete, steel and ACM look absolutely disgusting.

^ That's amazingly playful! Like Nouveau meeting Gaudi's Modernisme meeting Hundertwasser and Dutch brickwork. Fascinating. I could think of a better colour scheme and less messy shapes, but nonetheless a cool building.

I'm not a fan of postmodernism but I think some works of Richard England are intriguing.
The aquasun lido in Malta looks like a metaphysical painting

i never liked po-mo because i think it's rare to see an elaborate example of it, specially where i'm from.
but, as i did some online research, i fell in love with it... like the one in the post above - that's the essence of po-mo: shape, volume and colour, and i specially love the use of antic elements as they give those 3 elements a dose of humanity and aesthetic.
i would say it's more camp rather than kitch

This is Music Academy in Zagreb, which I think is very Po-Mo. The funny thing is, it was built in 2016.





I think it's better than other po-mo in Croatia
