Architecture Walking Tour: International Style

Celebrated short term for it's scientific approach to user friendly spaces, the Modern architecture movement quickly became labelled by some as de-humanizing. International Style began in the 1920s and 30s with architects like Mies Van der Rohe, Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, in the formative years of Modernism. Typified by open interior spaces, cantilevered floors that appear weightless, and light taut planes on the exterior, International style avoids the heaviness associated with other concrete modernist structures. Join Maurice Guibord for a walking tour around Downtown to see some award winning examples of the style, and hear more about the great Modernist debate.
