What Houzz contributors are saying:
As in America, Europe continued to embrace modernism in residential architecture consistently throughout the rest of the 20th century. Specifically, during the 1970s a group of architects known as the New York Five successfully built many projects using the modernist design theory that had developed in earlier decades. With that combined broad influence, the International style still lives up to its designation. Let us take a look around the world today at its influence. This Sydney, Australia, house has a sharp and confident position in its wooded setting. Smooth white stucco walls arranged in blocks shield and define the structure. The asymmetrical composition typifies this style. The roof ends and simple and minimal junctures of windows and doors to walls comply with the modernist theory of function only — no ornament necessary.
