Can modernist designs use timber and stone rather than steel and concrete?

Traditionally, modernist architecture has always used concrete and steel; these materials were selected for the modernity they represent, rather than aesthetic qualities.

But can excellent modernist forms work with 'traditional materials'?

On the lookout for interesting examples of stadia/sports, horse/equestrian facilities, transport infrastructure, libraries/education and social housing.

I believe it can.well of course,that depends on the project,i don't think you can build supertalls with wood and timber or stone.
but you can sure build houses.for example,alagna valsesia might be the best example.that city is build out of wood,timber and stone
