Abstract

Sean Griffiths, Charles Holland and Sam Jacob of FAT look back in retrospect at their top-ten Post-Modern moments. In a selection, which spans Denise Scott Brown looking vibrant in Las Vegas to James Stirling's exquisite drawing of the Derby Civic Centre and OMA's ingenious strip for the Parc de la Villette, they remind us of the dynamic radicalism of some of the period's greatest protagonists.
