Revising modernism – an architect under the lens

Lawrence-Stirling

In her new book, “James Stirling: Revisionary Modernist,” School of Architecture assistant professor Amanda Lawrence provides detailed historical insight and analysis of architectural modernism and postmodernism as she chronicles six key works by one of the late twentieth century’s most influential architects to bridge the gap: James Stirling. Though Stirling was, by the end of his career, largely considered a postmodernist, Lawrence’s critical analysis shows how Stirling maintained his modernist perspective by establishing a “dialogue with architectural tradition.”
