ABSTRACT

Starting from the Industrial Revolution, continuous technical progress in Modern Architecture introduced new dimensions to the traditional methods of construction. Thus, Modern Architecture had a tremendous effect in introducing new approaches to the aesthetic understanding of the built environment. In addition, there are a lot of criticism on the philosophy of Modern Architecture and the idea of Machine Age Architecture led to the lack of sense of place and cultural detachment. This study aimed to assess the existing gap in literature by using a qualitative assessment of literature on Modern Architecture and stylistic classification of architectural movements in the Modern era. Overall, the study concludes that ignoring cultural values and its semiological references in architectural design are the most important aesthetic factor that led to the failure of Modern Architecture.
