‘postmodernism was a movement in the 80’s and 90’s mainly in ireland which used references and motifs from ancient greece, rome etc. in a playful manner’
Only references to ancient rome and greece?: surely it also includes any reference to local traditional styles – my understanding was that that was what made contemporary Galway the embodiment of postmodern pastiche (old pseudo-land)- the synthesis of new architectural materials and styles with references to traditional-local elements also.
