“Modern Architecture: Postcards” Exhibition

The repertoire of modern architecture is expanding. Modern architecture’s aesthetic and technological project has overshadowed the other “projects,” primarily the social and the climatic. This inventory of postcards on modern architecture, collectively produced by students each describing three examples of architectural modernism through a photograph, a plan, and a piece of written text, presents the building subject as part of a simultaneously coherent yet discursive history of ideas, identities, images, places, and technologies. The postcards characterize modern architecture not only as a style or movement but a complex and contradictory history bound by key formal, theoretical, social, cultural, technological, economic, and political moments in time.

This exhibition constitutes Assignment 1 of the course ARCH2058 History and Theory of Modern Architecture taught by Dr Eunice Seng, with support from Sereypagna Pen, Putri R. Santoso, and Wan Yan.
