The Mental Disorders that Gave Us Modern Architecture

08.22.2017 By Ann Sussman, Katie Chen

How did modern architecture happen? How did we evolve so quickly from architecture that had ornament and detail, to buildings that were often blank and devoid of detail? Why did the look and feel of buildings shift so dramatically in the early 20th century? History holds that modernism was the idealistic impulse that emerged out of the physical, moral and spiritual wreckage of the First World War. While there were other factors at work as well, this explanation, though undoubtedly true, tells an incomplete picture.

Recent advances in neuroscience point to another important factor: one reason modern architecture looked so different than past constructions was because its key 20th century founders literally didn’t see the world in a “typical” fashion. They couldn’t. Their brains had been either physically altered by the trauma of war or, like Le Corbusier, they had a genetic brain disorder. And while their recommendations for “good design”—a new world, a clean slate—certainly reflected their talent, ambition, and drive, their remedies also reflected their brains’ specific disorders.

That façade looks a lot like if it was inspired by this Art Nouveau building in Milan, Piazza Liberty.
It's an old façade from 1902 which was saved from a building that was bombed in WWII, and attached onto a post-war building.

That building looks Art Nouveau to me, especially as it was constructed in 1902.

Yes, it is I got confused with the two terms, I edited it.
The style is called "Liberty" in Italian, and the name comes from the Liberty & Co department store in London, which made this style popular in Italy.

I always felt like Art Nouveau has a lot to offer even today. Pitty its era did not last for long.

And then there is what I assume to be the cheapness of undifferentiated blank walls and acres of plate glass.

Gorgeous!

Art Nouveau/Jugendstil/Secession is imo the one architecture style that unifies classical architecture, modernism, beauty, practicality and imagination best. It should be the prevalent modern architecture style.
What went wrong...? *sigh*
