If you’re anything like me, then you’re obsessed with peeking at anything and everything related to modernism, postmodernism, brutalism, and the like. Phaidon has released a new book all about the intriguing beauties of the past and present we call ‘modernist architecture.’ Everything from the revolutionary structures of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe to more contemporary architects and studios, such as Tadao Ando and Fran Silvestre Arquitectos. Phaidon’s Ornament is Crime is sure to awe anyone who flips through its pages to see the spectacular places that have made major impressions on a remarkable form.
Although modernism has its fair share of critics, admirers will marvel at this book and gain a new perspective on these monumental spaces. Grand windows that cover entire walls, case study homes, and plenty of sharp edges are on full display in this collection of incredible images that lay as an homage to a wonderful style of architecture that continues to prevail throughout time.
