Modern Architecture or Modernism was a product of the mid-20th century.

Famously coined as the International Style by Reyner Banham, the Modern style was linked notably with Le Corbusier and central European and generally western architecture.

Modernist Architecture eventually made its way to the Developing World and also to colder climates in the North where the white concrete didn't always weather so well.

Le Corbusier had a key and central role of what we know today as great modernist architecture, the rest well.. it’s a mixed bag really.

personally dude i feel like you didn't summarize what he was trying to say at all...you diluted modernism into an afterthought- the kind that you get in a bad public school

for sure - also building like this is considered as a modern architecture

this is nice thread and nice list of modern buildings, but I think that some bldgs from the list are not real masterpieces
