Menara Da Vinci (Da Vinci Tower), Jakarta

The angle is not perfect here, since neither the top nor the grand, classicist entrance is visible. But this is the most important postmodern building I have seen, for the simple reason that it seems to me it could be said to be no longer postmodern at all, but to transcend postmodernism’s mode of pastiche and not only converge towards but achieve a real creative historicist traditionalism – and thus, with it, seriousness.
