1970’s Architecture

The 1970s was a study in contradiction: austerity and decadence, drab earth tones and campy colors, nature-loving hippiedom, and high-tech futurism. Architecture in the 70s began as a continuation of styles created by such architects as Frank Lloyd Wright and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

The decade also brought experimentation in geometric design, pop-art, postmodernism, brutalism, and early deconstructivism.
