"*** Modern architecture, new architectural style that emerged in many Western countries in the decade after World War I. ***
It was based on the ""rational"" use of modern materials, the principles of functionalist planning, and the rejection of historical precedent and ornament. This style has been generally designated as modern, although the labels International style, Neue Sachlichkeit, and functionalism have also been used.
Speaking of style, this brings us to the next criteria. Style in architecture. This is another thing strongly related to someones personality, but you have to admit, when someone has style, this is obvious to everyone. I think architects and owners of those homes have amazing style in architecture and this is one of the reasons why I put those homes on the list.
Since the mid-19th cent. There had been repeated attempts to assimilate modern technology in practice and theory and to formulate a modern style of architecture suitable to its age. A functionalist approach eventually replaced the formerly eclectic approach to design. Technical progress in the use of iron and glass made possible the construction of Sir Joseph Paxton's celebrated Crystal Palace in London (1851), in which a remarkable delicacy was achieved. In the ensuing years iron, steel, and glass enabled architects and engineers to enclose the vast interior spaces of train sheds, department stores, and market halls, but often the structural forms were clothed with irrelevant ornament.
