The residential architecture is a universe part, and at the same time replicate the classic styles, the greeks and the romans, in the buildings neo-classical, is present in the houses modern, or contemporary, so to speak, with new styles that carry with them a legacy, very strong in modernist architecture and post-modernist.
It is necessary to remark that “modern” in the etymological sense corresponds to the current events, something new in the present, which would be equivalent to contemporary. Already modernism refers to a moment of aesthetic renewal, which began in the NINETEENTH century and is classified as a set of architectural styles produced during the nineteenth CENTURY, and who was remarkable between the decades of 1910 and 1950.
So when we talk about modern architecture in a popular sense to mean what it is today, but in the context of current architectural designates an architecture of the past.
Any way the architecture of modernity (the current) have their roots in modernist architecture (the style), is for the continuity of the thought generator in modernist architecture, or by the breaking of paradigms and the search for a new architecture.
See the following which is the origin of architecture that is being spread worldwide today.
The Origin of Modern Architecture the Current
Modern houses (the current) are a continuation of the modernist period of architecture, with inspirations from the big names of the architecture like Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Mies Van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, Adolf Loos and others. The proposal of modernism in general was a break with the classical architecture and its ornaments – the one full of columns and pediments that mimic the great temples, the greco-roman
The modernist movement happened in the midst of the Industrial Revolution and brought with it the use of new technologies such as reinforced concrete, metal and glass, giving rise to new architectural styles. Also based on the idea of architecture rationalist produced on an industrial scale.
Even today are repeated a few sentences of a great modernist architects, you’ve surely heard one of them that is famous not only in the architecture, because it is used in other contexts also:
– illustrate well the thought at the time that was based on an architecture that is functional, rational and pure. The modernist architecture was revolutionary, and as everything that is revolutionary there were those who accepted and those who dismissed that thought.
And from the modernist architecture emerged new styles, some derived giving continuity to the legacy, or by making the opposition, the so-called post-modernist.
The architecture of High-Tech was such a legacy that even today seeks to employ new technologies in architecture, cutting-edge materials.
The neo-rationalism was also a movement that derived, as well as the modern movement gave continuity in the use of pure geometric shapes without ornaments. Or even the structuralist movement, which aggregates and sorts the different geometric elements according to the function.
In the building below, built in reinforced concrete and metal beams, it is possible to observe that the intention of the architects was to showcase the “truth of materials”, without the use of any type of coating, the ornament, only the natural beauty of the concrete.
A movement that emerged in opposition to modernism is the deconstruction, which fragments the pure forms in buildings abstract, having as representatives of the great names of architecture as the architect Zaha Hadid, and architect Frank Gehry. And unlike modernism which he preached the order through the ways the objective (square, rectangle, circle), deconstruction aims to the complexity of the architectural and chaos visual, with a strong emotional appeal.
It is the case of this residence below, where the walls were multi-faceted and the higher volumes are arranged in a disordered way, purposely.
Other currents of opposition to modernism criticize the distancing from the past, and globalization, rescuing the values of regional and historicist, seeking a greater connection to the experiences of those who will use the space.
In this new wave of architecture also came on the agenda the sustainability and the unrestrained natural resources, because the construction uses a good part of the natural resources and is also one of the sectors that generates the waste pollutants.
So the ecological architecture has been strengthened in recent years, in order to reduce the impact of construction on the environment and taking into consideration socioeconomic factors and environmental factors to promote sustainability.
All these currents give rise to what today is produced by the architects, modern houses, in the sense of modernity.
To illustrate what is written above I collected some pictures of modern houses built in the last few years in various parts of the world. By the photos it is possible to notice that in spite of the different currents in the architectural regulations, there is a similarity intense between the architecture produced globally, which often does not take into account the regional aspect, which is the fruit of globalization.
