Postmodern architecture presents a new frontier in landmark preservation. While the preservation of postwar modern architecture is already well-established, postmodern buildings, landscapes, and interiors have only recently become eligible for landmarks protection in certain cities nationwide. Using the postmodern architecture of Chicago as a case study, this panel highlights and celebrates some of the notable projects from this period. It also explores the evolving concepts and issues about the presentation and interpretation of history and context in urban architecture. This event is a part of an ongoing program on postmodern design preservation by Metropolis magazine.
