1950’s Architecture

The 1950s in architecture was a time of departure from traditional forms and the embracing of cutting-edge materials and technologies. This period marked a significant advancement in the use of reinforced concrete, steel, and glass, leading to the construction of innovative and sleek structures. Architects of the 1950s, such as Le Corbusier, sought to create functional spaces that prioritized functionality over ornamentation, giving birth to the International Style.
