FAT’s fun-filled fresh Post-Modernism may seem 'radical' at a time when bulbous abstract Parametricism is the style du jour and the Post-Modern is rarely mentioned. But on this side of the Atlantic, it is not unusual to do Post-Modernism today. It is just taboo to talk about it, so this issue is welcome. A reconsideration of ideas that began to surface among American Modern architects in the 1950s and that were developed in Robert Venturi’s 1966 Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture is long overdue. And it is fun to have Charles Jencks, who popularised Venturi’s programme and other notions in the air at the time, championing the development once again. It is time to talk about communication in architecture, the value of context, the culture beyond architecture, the importance of the ordinary, the real potential of technology, and ways to use minimal means for aesthetic effect.
