Ornament is a Crime - Modernist Architecture

A Visual Manifesto for the Modernist Home Ornament is Crime is a visual compendium of the Modernist home, from early 1900s designs to contemporary structures carrying the austere style into the 21st century. Ornament Is Crime is a celebration and a thought-provoking reappraisal of modernist architecture. The book proposes that modernism need no longer be confined by traditional definitions, and can be seen in both the iconic works of the modernist canon by Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Walter Gropius, as well as in the work of some of the best contemporary architects of the twenty-first century. This book is a celebration of the most important architectural movement in modern history. By Gibberd and Hill for Phaidon
