Oh man this is going to be a venom filled hate-thread. There are some forumers that wish it was perpetually the late seventies and wish the eighties never happened. It kills me to read people trash the work of renonwned architects Johnson, Jahn, Pelli, Stern and others while making Gordon Bunshaft a diety. Postmodern design was a break from 3 decades of redundant boxes. Postmodernism brought back the romance of prewar aesthetics to highrise design. Today, top end highrise design is all structural expressionism, but the average buidling is just a box again - only now they're blue not black. I'll have to watch this thread...should be fun!
