Architectural critic Robert Stern has worked in all facets of the industry (practice, history, teaching) and built a reputation as one of the most influential figures in contemporary architecture. Among his many talents, Stern is a force of discourse. Architecture on the Edge of Postmodernism: Collected Essays, 1964 – 1988 covers work Stern produced between the rise of Robert Venturi and the 1988 exhibition Deconstructivist Architecture at MOMA. Along the way, Stern provides close readings of buildings, events, and more. The essays are a central to the critical thinking of the period.

Architecture on the Edge of Postmodernism comes from Yale University Press.
