The Modernistic style is considered to be the brainchild of famous architect Mies van der Rohe, who migrated from Europe to America in 1937. Van der Rohe's mantra of "less is more" was the basis for the Modernistic style. His concept was to make the construction and function of a building clear, with minimal ornamentation. The idea was to create the illusion of transparency and weightlessness, often wrapping a glass skin around the building.
The Modernistic style concept became popular in the unstable economy following World War II. As a cost saving measure machines were used to manufacture the homes. Sadly, this resulted in poor quality and monotony of design, which led to abandonment of the style in the early 1970s. Modernistic style homes are easily distinguished by the lavish use of glass and metal in their construction, and by the severe right angles and acute angles used in their design.
