Melbourne, VIC, Australia
De-constructing Architecture: Post-Modernism – the Academy of Architecture
With many fascinated by the postmodernist architectural influence on the breadth of today’s most celebrated work, the period of the 1900’s to the 2000’s marked by brutalism, deconstructivism and formatic expression, led to the construction of much more than it may have intended.
As the last part of the six-part series by the Academy of Architecture (AOA), this presentation will outline a historical timeline with careful look at the initiation and influence of the novel architectural movements listed above. Important focus will shed light on the world landscape, the environment and urban planning, prominent buildings and architectural styles, detailing, architectural personalities, methodology, notable achievements and the biggest challenges that will encourage change going forward.
This series will provide insight into how the field of architecture has changed the world, how different structures and materiality came to be and how the period of post-modermisn has refined the outcome and future of the field.
