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.




Robert A. M. Stern: Residence and Pool House
Llewelyn Park, New Jersey, 1982

Radical Postmodern Interiors To Be Inspired By During a renovation of a Georgian Revival estate in suburban New Jersey, architect Robert A.M. Stern added a glass-enclosed pool area in what was formerly a recessed terrace. Featuring stylized historical motifs, the dreamy space creates a compelling dialogue with the existing house, as well as an ideal place to take a refreshing dip.

 Paolo Portoghesi, Vittorio Gigliotti, Sami Mousawi and Nino Tozzo: Mosque and Islamic Cultural Center
Rome, 1995

Radical Postmodern Interiors To Be Inspired By While its exterior features such classic Italian materials as travertine and masonry, the Mosque of Rome’s interior boasts a forest of stark-white columns meant to resemble trees whose twisting branches offer structural support. “There is no better symbol with which to express the diversity inherent in the unity of Islam,” said architect Paolo Portoghesi, in 1991. “The roots, trunk, branches, and leaves of the tree, like the various countries in which Islam prevails, are all different, yet work together as a complete organism.”

Charles Moore: Moore/Andersson Compound
Austin, Texas, 1984

The collage-like fireplace, pictured above, speaks to the architect’s penchant for putting a colorful spin on historical motifs.

John Outram: Duncan Hall, Rice University
Houston, Texas, 1996

Radical Postmodern Interiors To Be Inspired By This soaring atrium within Rice’s Duncan Hall features kaleidoscopic patterns in virtually every direction. The elaborate vinyl ceiling mural, for instance, boasts a stunning design that architect John Outram drew by hand on a standard sheet of paper and then digitally enlarged.

Helmut Jahn: State of Illinois Center
Chicago, 1985

Acclaimed architect Helmut Jahn crafted a 17-story building, which features a dizzying Escher-esque lobby, to house a slew of Illinois’s state agencies. Boasting a 160-foot high rotunda, the colorful atrium was designed to articulate the government’s commitment to transparency.
