Rise of modern architecture Modern architecture was conceived in the 19th century taking inspiration from the early styles of Italian Renaissance, baroque and Gothic. The architects of the modern day announced that form should be the result of function. The need for new type of building arouse post industrial revolution. The construction technologies changed during this period with the rise in cities and densely packed neighborhoods.


The rise of apartments As a result of the industrial revolution, cities started to develop and the need for housing was felt. Apartment buildings were constructed to accommodate the increasing population. Steel frames made of reinforced concrete were used to building tall structures. Warehouses were also built to store machineries and raw materials. With this came the construction of bridges and dockyards to hold heavy transport traffic. Such requirements leave a lot of scope for design excellence for the Architects in Chennai.


Some of pioneers in the early 20th century included  Otto Wagner and Joseph Hoffman from Austria  H O Berlage from Holland  Hands Poelzig and Peter Behrens from Germany The first modern architectures was the Behren turbo factory built in Berlin in the year 1909. The international construction style was indicated in the year 1918.


European architects were influential outside their countries among them Corbusier was the pioneer for nearly five decades. It was he who advocated the structural frame to lift pillars. He conceived flat roofs that were made use as gardens. Each floor is planned according to the need and all the load is borne by the structural frame. This gives scope to plan the interior accommodation freely.


The best way to depict modern architecture is to refer to skyscraper. In these structures steel truss framework and I beam construction is made use of. It carries the building weight and cross wide space without the use of massive beams or pillars. It adds strength and lightness to the building. One such example is the Empire State Building in New York.
