Modern Building Selections : Thumbnails only
e-architect pick the best examples of 20th Century architecture. We try to include Modernist buildings that are of top quality and interesting.
We cover completed contemporary buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the world. The focus is on Modern buildings but information on modern style buildings is also welcome.
Featured on this website are numerous projects by some of the world’s greatest architects, such as Le Corbuiser, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Llooyd Wright and Walter Gropius. There is significant depth to this international resource so you will also find content for lesser known architects such as Berthold Lubetkin in England and Mart Stam in the Czech Republic.
We are always open to suggestions and also welcome submissions of text and credited images for our consideration. Please include key information such as building title, address, date and architect if you can.
