Quick Reference

Architecture in which the images, ideas, and motifs of the Modern Movement were taken to extremes, structure, technology, and services being grossly overstated at a time when Modernism was being questioned. The work of Piano and Rogers at the Pompidou Centre, Paris (1971–7), has been cited as an example, although it has also been seen as High Tech.
