Term represents the mainstream of modern architecture from the 1920’s-end of 1950’s or even up until the 1970’s. Importance shifted from the mass of a building to the volume. Also regularity in structure became more important than axial symmetry. Considered part of a social revolution that included the commence of mass production and a greater sense of order in design with a greater significance placed on residential architecture. Le Corbusier’s “five points of a new architecture’ helped him define the new style. They included: free standing supports, a roof garden, the free plan, the ribbon window and the freely composed façade. Each country tended to have a different interpretation, but each was clearly modern and often influenced by cubism. Le Corbusier was by far the most influential International architect. Others included Amyas Connell, Maxwell Fry, Berthold Lubetkin, Gunnar Asplund and Alvar Aalto.
