About the book Modernism under review – 1980–2020
As part of the Architecture Journal CRITICISM's 15th anniversary, Syntes publishing house publishes three volumes with collections of articles by leading employees. First in line is Thomas Hellquist, architect and professor emeritus in Architecture and Design, active in Lund. Hellquist is a prominent figure within the Swedish postmodernist movement in the field of architecture. In 1980, he helped start the magazine Magazine Ticino which was a forum for the new ideas spreading in philosophy and culture at this time. The critique of the prevailing modernist ideology and aesthetics was essential, a discussion that is still completely relevant. We still live in a postmodern state. The article collection begins in 1980 with texts from Magazine Ticino. After the magazine's closure at the end of the 1980s, Thomas Hellquist was active as a writer in, among other things, the magazine Architecture and in the daily press. During the last decade, Thomas' texts have mainly been published in Arkitekturtidskriften CRITICISM. These three eras are all represented in the book's 40 articles from 40 years.
