p.s. Yes, it’s a holiday here and, yes, I’m taking the day off (I haven’t forgotten my mini-rant on Friday about needing a break) but I couldn’t have a Monday without Leftovers!

Do a search using Modernist Architecture and you’ll immediately fall down a rabbit hole from which there may be no return. Not that that’s a bad thing, mind you, if you love the style like I do. I love it, and I feel like I don’t know exactly how to define the hallmarks of it, which is part of what makes that kind of search so interesting to me. Here’s some of what I recently found after said search:

A Modernist home in Morocco. The fact that an entire house is set within that open block structure--which has its own interesting multi-story section--is amazing to me. | japanesetrash.com

This Modernist home in Morocco was designed by a protege of Philippe Starck. The fact that an entire house is set within that open block structure–which has its own interesting multi-story section–is amazing to me.


Then, there’s this much more modest Modernist prefab–most likely around the size of the house that’s inside the box in the above Moroccan home. You know I love a good prefab and the setting here is transcendent:

Followed by a classic Palm Springs Modernist abode, the Leff Residence. This is really what I tend to think of when I think of Modernist Architecture:

And now a rocky, beachy, rustic moment. Modernist homes do happen a lot in forbidding terrain, don’t they?

Seems like Modernist homes love a desolate, sandy or rocky terrain, don't they? | japanesetrash.com


Wrapping up with a Modernist beauty in the wooded wilds of Argentina.

Next time I fall down the rabbit hole in a search, let’s hope I end up somewhere as terrific as all of these places!
