Project Description:
Modernism is not the brainchild of any person, but a convergence of many ideas and thoughts throughout the decades. With the advent of the industrial revolution and the rapid changing of the times, there was a call for a new way of representation.

The spirit of modernity is the embodiment of the technologies of the times. The use of computational based design within this proposal reflects the age of information - the age of our times. This is a graphical representation of the forces of modernity. People dictate the flows and in turn affect others. Names of influential modern designers/architects of the 20th century, such as Gerrit Rietveld, Norman Foster and Alvaro Siza, serve as the poles in which forces (lines) radiate from. This in turn develops into a ripple effect. They act as philosophical and physical forces of influence.
