Feast Your Eyes on These Stunning Modern Structures

Modern architecture, or modernist architecture, is a style that emerged with the onset of industrialization. With large-scale shifts in technology and society, architecture too was beginning to change in the early 20th century. Traditional buildings slowly started making way for more functional structures focused on structural innovation and minimal decoration. The style also emphasizes volume and asymmetrical compositions.

Modernist architecture has led to the construction of a wide array of buildings throughout the world. Let's take a look at some of its finest examples.
