“Modernism is a philosophical movement that, along with cultural trends and changes, arose from wide-scale and far-reaching transformations in Western society in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.”

If you’ve arrived at our blog, you probably don’t need a lesson on Modernism. There are great resources and websites already devoted to the period of architecture, design and art which we love.

We’ll be adding to our favourite resources below (in no particular order) if you’d like to explore more:
