Charles Jencks became popular on giving an architectural meaning to the concept of postmodernity in his The Language of Post-Modern Architecture in 1977. His work as a theorist has been accompanied by an intense project activity in the field of landscape, which has determined his scientific and naturalist approach to architecture and the contemporary metropolis.
