The modern movement includes a series of architectural movements and advancements that derives from the stylistic and creative remnants of the Art Nouveau, Cubist and Art Deco periods; incorporates the Zweckkunst of the German Neues Bauen; French ferro-concrete experiments; American health programs and industrial design; social and political bases of Russian Constructivism, that lead to the ‘functionalist’ buildings of the International Style and its seminal regional variation.
