Modern House Plans and Architecture
Modern architecture is a term applied to an architectural movement overall, the Modern architectural design is too broad to have an exact definition but is usually a style of house designs used to describe the way building designs were evolving at the turn of the 20th century.
Modern house plans try to keep in mind and reflect extremely rapid technological involvements in material and designs as a whole which is applied to society design as a whole.
Instead of using modern architecture to describe what a design is, it can also be used to describe what a house plan is not; modern architecture is often used to distinguish the design against designs such as new classical, contemporary, postmodern and even classical architecture depending on the context.
The Rise of Modern House Plans and Architecture
Modern House Plans and Architecture gained popularity after the Second World War and quickly became one of the more dominant architectural styles taught by architectural educators. Modernism gained steam as architects continued using this form of design into the 21st Century more specifically in corporate and institutional buildings.
Popular Architects which had the biggest impact on modern house plan designs include Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, Frank Lloyd Wright, Joseph Eichler, Richard Neutra, Louis Sullivan, Gunnar Asplund, Arne Jacobsen, Oscar Niemeyer and Alvar Aalto.
Modern House Plans, Today...
Modern House plans today are the most popular form of architectural design, the design evolved into tidy lines, simple proportions, open layouts with plentiful natural light, and are descendants of the International architectural style. Flat or shallow-pitched roofing, massive expanses of glass, strong connections to outdoor space, and spare, unornamented walls are all main characteristics of Modern house designs. The lot is frequently incorporated into the Modern style home, switching outdoor living space into alfresco spacious rooms.
