Postmodern Architecture

Everyone in this world needs something new every time, people always need a change so that they can experience something that keeps them amused, postmodernism is just like rain in the hot summer, in the late 19 architects were looking for something new in architecture rather than ordinary styles and designs.

Postmodern architecture was created just to show people that architecture can be creative and fun too when architects eliminated all the ordinary materials and core principles of modern architectural style, post-modern architecture was born with lots and lots of creativity and unordinary with unusual architectural style.

Later postmodernism was the key to creating architectural styles like neo-futurism, and deconstructivism, by 1970-90 it was at its peak and then many such twin architecture styles were born and people adapted to it later.
