Jonas Grinevičius and Kotryna Brašiškytė

From stunningly gorgeous and utopian to cold and soulless, there are probably as many opinions about modernist buildings as there are people in the world. In the eternal discussion about whether function or form is more important, the balance might arguably be skewed in favor of the former when we talk about modernism, the architectural style that dominated much of the 20th century. Though who’s to say that modernism doesn’t allow for beauty and balance?

The ‘Modernist Architecture’ subreddit is a digital space where people can discuss the style of architecture and share photos of buildings around the entire world. The modernist buildings they share are truly impressive. But whether or not you approve of them is entirely up to you, Pandas.

Scroll down and upvote the pics that you liked the most. We’d also love to hear your opinions on this, so tell us what you think of these buildings and modernism as a whole in the comments. If you enjoyed what you saw, be sure to follow r/ModernistArchitecture for their latest posts.

Bored Panda got in touch with the friendly moderator team at r/ModernistArchitecture. Redditor u/joaoslr, the founder of the community, as well as its head mod, was kind enough to answer our questions about the subreddit, as well as modernism as a whole. "I believe that in order to fully understand modernist architecture, you need to look at its history and context," the redditor told us. Read on for the full interview.
