Summary
Co-sponsored by the Schools of Architecture at the University of Notre Dame and University of Miami, an historic event in New York City gathered the founding members of the Postmodernism movement on November 11 and 12, 2011. "The generations who followed came together at what was possibly the last opportunity to learn from those women and men who forged Postmodernism and to consider its legacy. " says ICAA president, Paul Gunther. Reconsidering Postmodernism features film interviews with Denise Scott Brown and Vincent Scully, as well as Tom Wolfe's keynote address celebrating the 30th anniversary of the publication of his seminal text, From Bauhaus to Our House. Also incorporated are lectures and panel discussions by 36 leading architects, scholars and critics including Tom Beeby, Barry Bergdoll, Andrés Duany, Paul Goldberger, Michael Graves, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Demetri Porphyrios, Jaquelin Robertson, Witold Rybczynski, and Robert A M. Stern. The film captures the intellectual spirit of the conference through rich content presented by the people who shaped Postmodernism, including Charles Jencks, who coined the term in his 1975 essay "The Rise of Postmodern Architecture. "The conference was conceived by Gary Brewer, architect and partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects and ICAA Board Member. "Thanks to the peerless artistry of the Checkerboard Film Foundation," Brewer commented, "Institute constituents and others can explore a collective debt to Postmodernism -- prompting the possibility to question the orthodoxy of high modernism in force at the time of its advent. "Paul Gunther concludes, "Our aim has been not only to look back historically, but also to place Postmodernism in a dynamic current context ... To that end, current students and others curious and uninitiated are welcome to take due advantage of this vibrant film and video archive. "Producer: Edgar Howard. Associate Producer: David Ludwig. Editor: Georgia Gruzen.
