Modern Architecture!Indeed, the motto of the Olympic Games, which is translated into English as “Faster, Higher, Stronger”, can fit pretty nicely the modern architecture, which generates the most audacious ideas and immediately realizes them, creating stronger constructions, higher buildings and doing all that much faster than ever before. Whether it is an impressive skyscraper in glass and concrete, or a magnificent steel tower, or a bridge – the monuments of modern architecture earned their worldwide popularity and fame thanks to their technical advancements, unusual yet excellent design, and skillful, obviously artistic, implementation.
Architecture has always pursued two major objects – to make buildings a) functional and b) aesthetically attractive. These core standards still remain in use in modern architecture. Of course, functionality of buildings as well as aesthetics change and evolve constantly, but real masterpieces never lose their attractiveness and value. Have a look at the Pentagon building, and you will see the emblem of the American power and mightiness through it. On the other hand, even a single glance at the Eifel Tower is enough to recreate the atmosphere of French romance. Buildings, we have gathered in this gallery, are no doubt known worldwide. These architectural masterpieces form the cultural heritage our generations will pass on to our successors. Have a look at these magnificent creations – they are worthy of being proud of, aren’t they?
