Radical Postmodern Interiors

Postmodern architecture emerged in the 1960s as a radical response to the clean-lined modernist structures that dotted many a mid-century metropolis. By deploying classical geometries in oversized scales as well as eclectic material palettes, architects like Michael Graves, Ettore Sottsass, and Robert A.M. Stern created a generation of dramatic buildings that were undeniably eye-catching and delightfully nonconformist. Join Most Expensive Homes and discover the most radical postmodern interiors around the world.
