Also known as the International Style, Modernism eliminates ornament and emphasizes steel, glass and concrete material to create a sleek look, in which “form follows function.”
The Modernist Movement used innovative materials and mass-produced fittings, often originally intended for industrial settings, to create original furniture and buildings.
The first variants were conceived early in the 20th century. Modern architecture was adopted by many influential architects and architectural educators; however, very few “modern buildings” were built in the first half of the century. The Modernist Movement gained popularity after World War II and became the dominant architectural style for institutional and corporate buildings for three decades.
