Post-Modern architecture is a counter reaction to the strict and almost universal modernism of the mid-20th century. It reintroduces elements from historical building styles, although usually without their high level of detail. Common features include columns, pyramids, arches, obelisks, unusual or attention-getting shapes and roof lines, and combinations of stone and glass on the facade.
