Postmodernism and Postmodernity (2011)
The Sony building stands at the corner of Madison Avenue and 56th Street in midtown Manhattan. At 197 meters, it’s a little higher than its immediate neighbours, but there are at least sixty taller buildings in the city. It is an inoffensive creamy color. At ground level there’s a spectacular atrium. Yet when it was completed in 1984, it was considered the most shocking building in the world.
