CIAM (Congrès Internationaux d’Architecture Moderne) was an international congress of architects founded in 1928 that aimed to promote modern architecture and urban planning principles. It was a key organization in the development of modernist architecture and significantly impacted architectural discourse and education throughout the 20th century. The members of CIAM advocated for functionalism, standardization, and a focus on social and economic factors in architecture and urban planning. Their ideas influenced the design of cities and buildings worldwide, particularly in the post-World War II era.
