This is the Modern World

Challenge #4 in the Richard's Series series. Hosted by Richard Butler.
Challenge has finished
Modernist architecture isn't always a popular style, so here's a challenge to show the style at its best. If you're in London you can look for inspiration at the Le Courbusier exhibition - if you're anywhere else, you might be able to find examples of his work, or perhaps a Mies van der Rohe to get you going. Nothing too abstract though - once you can no longer tell it's a building, it's no longer eligible.
