Abstract

Jayne Merkel relishes the opportunity to talk about architecture in the light of communication, context, wider culture, ‘the ordinary’, new technology and aesthetic affect - all topics that are back on the agenda with this issue on Radical Post-Modernism. However, she provides a view from Manhattan that calls into question the possible re-emergence of a ‘Radical Post-Modern’ movement in North America, although some members of the American architectural establishment continue to practice PoMo even if they do not preach it.
