Architecture, Postmodern. Summary The new paradigm in architecture tells the story of a movement that has changed the face of architecture over the last forty years. The book begins by surveying the counter culture of the s, when Jane Jacobs and Robert Venturi called for a more complex urbanism and architecture. It concludes by showing how such demands began to be realized by the s in a new architecture that is aided by computer design. Promoted by such architects as Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, and Peter Eisenman, it has also been adopted by many schools and offices around the world. Charles Jencks traces the history of computer design which is built on the desire for an architecture that communicates with its users, one based on the heterogeneity of cities and global culture.
In recent years Jencks has devoted time to landform architecture, especially in Scotland. Achange of heart, a new vision for architecture?

Evolutionnary tree , Jencks, The new paradigm in architecture Basically it is the way the self-organizing universe became the referent for our meta- narrative, at least in the west.
But of course postmodernists accept a multi-speed world, and are committed to its pluralism. Can we speak of an architecture that goes beyond intuition and traditional working methods?
In what sense?
In which field do you think it has a greater impact? Socially and economically the globe is driven by top-down computation, rather than bottom up emergence, as it was in the past agrarian societies. And this fact presents a great problem for architects, especially those with a social conscience: the disjuncture between their bottom up models and top down corporations. Architects occupy a middle ground here. There are a few digital inventions such as Wikipedia that employ the wisdom of crowds creatively — we hope there is more Wiki-architecture.
What is the limit of postmodernism? Is there any red- line that could mark the end of this period? Which is the main difference between the Post-Modern period and the period of complex architectures? Could we say that is still alive today?
Under what assumptions? The iconic building and the Bilbao Effect are still growing, with difficulties in quality, but are not about to disappear - even if their death is announced continually by unhappy critics.
Architects will have to rethink their relation to power and money, and become both more realistic about society and more critical. Post-Modern evolutionary tree. Hilier, M. Batty or C. Alexander, among others.
In fact I am critical of some Modern and Late-Modern architecture because it privileges aesthetic over moral, semiotic and other issues. Hillier, Batty and Alexander have, in different ways, each made great contributions to the growing paradigm, but it is important to remember that, as with Modernism, it includes many streams in its broad river delta see my The Story of Post-Modernism, Wiley, where the deltas are discussed with the evolutionary tree.
The deep and surface river of traditions is an acceptable and pluralist metaphor for dealing with these problems. In your opinion, what is the weight of these scientific proposals within the new paradigm?
Are they equally relevant or should be considered as secondary? My own cosmogenic work is based on contemporary science see the writing The Garden of Cosmic Speculation, , The Universe in the Landscape, , etc. No one heard it for obvious reasons , but scientifically it was absolutely silent in sound. In fact, this heterogeneity is supposed to be one of the main features of postmodern context and also of the complex architecture.
While the first post-modern manifestations embraced and promoted this eclectic and diverse attitude, most current architectural proposals related to the sciences of complexity tend to promote a restrictive and hegemonic attitude, trying to impose their ideas and formal criteria on the rest of options such as P.
