The accepted notion that Gothic architecture as a style had run its course by the early years of the twentieth century is quite frankly, utterly wrong. With Gothic revivalism continuing not just through the 1920’s and 1930’s, in America, Gothic as a style became an integral tool for the design kit of skyscrapers and an essential part of Art Deco. Even after the Second World War, Gothic continued to be a key part of the architectural scene. It has even become a part of Post-Modernist architecture (Philip Johnson’s PPG complex in Pittsburgh is a good example). In these first decades of the twenty-first century Gothic both in traditional forms and in the hands of Post Modernism and indeed post, Post-Modernism remains a vibrant and very much alive form.Tutor: Mike Hope
