joshg1973 asked: You tagged the Belgian underbite house postmodern. I thought of it as red brick brutalism (small b). It has the massing, here simple protruding shapes, I equate with Brutalism, and it reminds of my old college's 1970s library extension. Built into a slope it had skylight stacks lighting different levels like this house.

That’s an interesting point. What college was that?

There is indeed brick brutalism that looks like this, but I wouldn’t label this building as such. Still, it can be a thin line between brutalism and postmodernism.

Either way, the way I use the postmodernism tag is, admittedly, very unscientific (it doesn’t help that I hate pomo). Anyting from late-modern until recent, where the architect gets too creative with all kinds of influences easily gets the postmondernism tag in my world.
