Iin my previous posts, it may appear that I am inclined towards the more classic/vintage styles of interiors. To correct this one-sided impression, here is my look on Modern Architecture. I think modern architecture can be great, unless it is built in the right location. For me, the right location is usually in a forest or in some tropical spot, preferably seafront!

I am starting off with two classics: the Falling Water house by Frank Lloyd Wright, built in 1939 and the equally famous Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe, built in 1951.
