  •  Post-modern looks too chock-a-block to me. (3+ / 0-)

    Stone panels hanging on a steel frame made to look more substantial than it actually is.

    Not sure what you call the post-post-modern steel and glass stuff coming up now, but some of it is interesting, some of it is bland, to me.

    I'm getting really tired of steel and glass everywhere, though.

    I've seen some buildings combining concrete and steel-and-glass in interesting ways, lately. Hope that keeps up.

      Would like to see!

      Milwaukee Art Museum (Calatrava) is really lovely, and the tiny underground parking garage is a jewel (used in a Porsche ad). I never tire of looking at it. MAM itself is comprised of three sort of "signature" buildings: one is Modernist, one Brutalist, and then the Calatrava.
