More About the Author

Charles Jencks divides his time between lecturing, writing, and designing in the USA, the UK, and Europe. He is the author of the best-selling The Language of Post-Modern Architecture(re-issued as The New Paradigm in Architecture, 2002). He has also written numerous other books on contemporary arts and building, including What is Post-Modernism? (fourth edition, 1995) and The Architecture of the Jumping Universe (second edition, 1997). His celebrated garden in Scotland is the subject of his book The Garden of Cosmic Speculation (Frances Lincoln, 2003) and in 2004 the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, won the Gulbenkian Prize for Museums for his design, Landform Ueda. Landform projects have also been completed in Europe, and his current concern is working with Cern on an iconographic and green project. He is the author of The Iconic Building, the Power of Enigma, (Frances Lincoln, 2005), Critical Modernism, (Wiley 2007), and The Architecture of Hope with Edwin Heathcote, on Maggie Centres (Published by Frances Lincoln 2010). The Story of Post-Modernism, Five Decades of Ironic, Iconic and Critical Architecture (Wiley, 2011) brings this resurgent tradition up to date while his recent landscape work is summarised in The Universe in the Landscape (Frances Lincoln, 2011).

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it modern if its old? 18 April 2012
By Richard
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not for the faint hearted, there's some pretty deep stuff so I wouldn't recommend this as a light enjoyable read. You've got to want to delve and understand architecture on a different level, which isn't everyone's cup of tea and there's no pictures to help you out.
