In this symposium, leading architects, designers, artists and critics reflect on the influence and legacy of postmodernism, and ask what the renewed interest in its ideals and values has to do with our own period of political and economic uncertainty.

This event has been organised alongside the exhibition "The Return of the Past: Postmodernism in British Architecture", which is on at Sir John Soane’s Museum, 16 May – 26 August 2018.
