  1. It’s a little strange, to be honest. Although the overall shape is unmistakably modern, the specifics, especially those on the windows, are ultra-postmodern. It was either designed in the early 1960s and then updated in the 1970s and 1980s, or it was built in the late 1960s in a mashup style.

    E: It’s also fuck-ugly, as the other commenters reported. However, it is not an architectural theme.

  2. The term “5 over 2” refers to the fact that there are five apartment floors above two mixed-use floors. Even though this is three over one, it’s just a matter of nomenclature. It’s also been used in mid-rise or stumpies. This is contractor trendy, which is a typology, not a design.

  3. It’s postmodern, with “modernized” classical elements in the handrails and windows, as well as a postmodern roof element. However, postmodern elements are understated, and functionalist elements overshadow the building style in favor of a bland, dull modern structure.

  4. Since not all architects are capable of creating good architecture, not all buildings can be incorporated into a movement. It may be conveniently positioned, have nice interiors, and be well constructed, but that does not make it good architecture. It has to be meaningful to me, with a concept, an idea, and some attempt to improve people’s lives.
    TLDR, it’s yet another uninspired new structure.

  5. The time is now. Historians will create a mark when conventional design departs from this. He said, ironically, “Yippee.” But, really, we shouldn’t mark it until we can examine all of the contributing factors that lead **developers** to hire architecture firms to create these.
