I would say in some sense is. Postmodernism is just maybe the first signaled formally different reaction to international style. Rationalism or the 70's was still too close to international style to be such thing.

Then the reaction 8still ongoing even under minimalist disguise) used different ways to recclaim form and design. The more patent post-modernism was close to kitsch and involving ornament in the form of jokes on classicist items. The hi-tech ways of Hong-Kong and Shangai Bank are equally wanting to cause big (more than great) impression through akin esageration or structural items. Be the transformation applied to become ornament or actual structure, intent remains quite the same.
