Usefulness, durability and beauty of ornaments defines the fundamental elements of a building; however, ornaments now-a-days urbanized differently. " I see ornament in architecture as having dual function. On the one hand it offers support to the construction and draws attention to the means it employs; on the other... it brings life into a uniformly illuminated space by the interplay of light and shade". -Henry Van de
According to Holl (1989), the most distinctive feature of architecture instead of the other activities is to stem from being an integral part of a place. This means that place is a ground with its inside and outside and constitutes the basis of both the building and the design. Holl’s architectural manner contains the responsibility of focusing on the urban voids in architectural design. In his essay named as “Modernizm’in Yerellikle Uzlaşma Arayışı: Holl” , Abdi Güzer (1995) mentions about the concept of anchoring of Holl that the exterior voids are not only the ground of the building but also of design concepts. Also, the building does not always have a change in order to take part in music, film or art, thus every building has only one place.

Wright also achieves this on the interior using stonework, creating detailed effects as well as bringing the effects of the exterior inside, echoing the rock ledges and terraces within the shelving and once again rounding the edges, which similar to Loos, creates a rich interior.

Initially, looking at the aesthetics of the building, the impression of modernism is not portrayed, but is only given purely from the concrete parapets within the terraces. Analysing the building and theories of Loos and Venturi, allowed a clearer view that the building could be classed as ‘modernist’ to be seen, not purely from the importance of the materiality of Wright’s project but also down to the combination of detailing of the interior and exterior and the spaces, as well as the decoration. There are factors which link Falling Water to post-modernism, but more evidently, the building has factors contributing to Loos theory of modernism than it does to post-modernism, leading to my answering the question by identifying Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water as a modernist building.

Glass was an expression of the current age of industrialism as he believed a building should be “a clear and true statement of its times. Fundamentally, Mies’s design philosophy and one of the driving forces behind his use of glass was the concept of fluid space as stated before.
Form Follow Function Introduction There are several ideas that changed architecture and one of the famous idea was “form follow function”. It is a phrase that is not only used in architecture but also used in product design, engineering, urban design and popular media and culture. Some architects believed in form follow function while other like famous American architect Louis Sullivan believed that form ever follow function. In the phrase “form follow function” form can be said to follow function only if function is considered as a whole that precede form. Later by an architect Bernard Tschumi this phrase was inverted from “form follow function” and became “function follow form” by the belief that building form did not need to signify its use.

Solid surface and laminate remain popular and cost effective alternatives, however, they can be too scratchy. Spend More on the Shower The bathroom is officially for shower. As such, a significant investment should be directed to the shower.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe stripped his buildings down and achieved art through his seemingly basic forms by allowing the structure and craft of both materials and design to become the ornament. He opened his linear buildings to nature; embracing steel construction to reduce heavy walls to transparent glass. Alvar Aalto wished to create spaces with the same vibrant and rich beauty as is found in nature using curved walls, ceilings or screens and using local materials such as brick, wood, and stone. Aalto veered away from machinism in favor of a more natural organization. Mies and Aalto took architectural style into the modern era each taking a vastly different paths built on the same foundation.
