Functionalism and Postmodernism

An example of organic mixture between architecture styles of different eras... Can you guess what's here a Functionalism from 1930ies and what's - postmodernism of half century later, 1980ies? The answer - lanterns in forefront and the next buulding in distance is from 80ies, the brown building is Functionalism classics from 1935.

  1. Parallel Universe, Snake and Functionalsim; all great photos Ikars! Too bad those 1980s light posts are in front of an otherwise beautiful building in this one.

  2. Those lanterns? No, I very like them! I think they fits with buildings perfectly. I even didn't know they are from 80ies.
    Thanks for good words, Int!

  3. Those lanterns are beautiful. What a nice addition to the area.

  4. These laterns goes together with the two buildings on Kaļķu street (hotel de Rome and Swedbank branch).
    Functionalism of Riga is worth exploring closer - these building seems to be perfect in forms and proportions.
