The recently completed Maintower, in Zurich, is an amazing revival of this style of architecture.

There's very few of them in Manila since the 70's/80's was the time when the Philippines started to fall from grace but one that comes to mind would be the 15-floor China Bank Tower along Paseo de Roxas:



the Trump Tower Manila imo, will be a great revival of this style:

Surely, the most representative exponents of this style are in NYC or Chicago, like Seagram or Sears.

This are some international style boxes in Buenos Aires ...

Carlos Pellegrini tower. One face is international style, and the other ... High tech perhaps?








Catalinas Plaza towers. Actually, these are late 90's but they are just glass boxes.





In fact, the Catalinas skyline in Buenos Aires, is just a collection of international style boxes ...

I've always debated on whether or not the masterpiece Trump World Tower should be in this thread. International Modernist, or simply modern, in general?




Also, the incredibly stunning and timeless beauty Tour Areva, Paris





Nearly had a twin, too

I propose a new 'box movement' should be established here to show people here the importance and true beauty of minimalist modern buildings. They are amazing on their own, with their clean lines and soaring shape, and prevent the skyline from becoming cluttered and disorganized, as well. People should learn about how architects like Mies Van Der Rohe, Yamasaki, or I.M. Pei revolutionized architecture. Calling International Style buildings 'boring boxes' is completely ignorant. Strange how people are always thrilled by postmodern towers in China and Dubai yet always bash real skyscrapers like First Canadian Place, IBM Center, Chase Manhattan Plaza, etc.

Isn't it rather ignorant calling others subjective opinions ignorant and to believe that they don't like them simply because they haven't learned about it?

I've seen plenty of comments saying such buildings have no architecture whatsoever, and that buildings are better off without these buildings, and those seem pretty ignorant to me. And it's true that many people haven't learned about the true beauty of such buildings. I used to not care for them until I looked at them closer and studied them more.
