Postmodernism is considered to be the most prevalent feature of modernism, which is characterized by a combined imitation (Pastiche). The postmodern moment comes when the avant-garde (modern) is no longer able to continue and advance, and can not go a step further. The postmodern response to modernity implies acknowledgment of the fact that the past must be reconsidered or revised, because the past can not really be destroyed, because the destruction of the past leads to silence. Postmodernism indicates a new kind of crisis in the modernist culture itself. This crisis emphasizes that scattered, decomposing, passing, turbulent and disordered aspect in Baudelaire’s formulation. Post-modern state of affairs has been closely associated with the growth of cities, particularly with the dramatic trend of urbanization and migration to major cities in recent decades. But this growth of cities was beyond what Le Corbusier and Max Weber considered to be for civilized and rational groups. In general, modernism and postmodernism have influenced various fields of literature, art, architecture, urban sociology, social theory, and urbanization, and their influence is still evident in these areas. In this article, written by descriptive-analytical method, we try to consider the concepts and characteristics of modernism and postmodernism in the field of urbanization, their differences and effects, especially of postmodernism, in different urban areas including physical and non-physical.
