COUNTDOWN TO NYE
A lively and provocative exploration of postmodern design, the most high-profile and controversial movement of the 20th century, and the people and companies that shaped its development. Accompanied by images of postmodern architecture, objects and interiors, the discussion will highlight its politically-motivated rise, its explosive debut in the international marketplace, its precipitous decline and its resurgence in the forefront of contemporary style trends. The panelists will also discuss the current challenge of preserving iconic examples of postmodern architecture that are now endangered.
