Style/Period: Late Modern
Style/Period Description: LATE MODERNISM (1970-1990S) This style developed in the 1970s as a continuation of the Second International Style. Late Modernists have attempted to create the expression in architecture of the conditions of the modern industrialized world, but have extended the language of earlier modernism to include a richer range of forms. Some Late Modernists create visual interest by pulling structural members to the outside of the buildings, and others by modeling the building forms more sculpturally, often to emphasize, or appear to emphasize, the different functional elements. These architects tend to emphasize the expression of structure or the expression of function. An influential architect for Late Modernists was Louis Kahn (1901-74); his Yale Center for British Art (1969-77) in New Haven, Connecticut, has been admired and emulated. Another admired practitioner of Late Modernism is I.M. Pei, architect of the East Building of the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. and of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.
