From the disparate forms presented by the last vestiges of Beaux Arts and Art Nouveau, there soon developed Modern Architecture. This term covers so many forms such as the International Style, De Stijl, the Bauhaus, Expressionist Architecture, Constructivist Architecture, Art Deco, Totalitarian Architecture, Brutalism, Post-Modernism and the strangely named Blobitecture. In introducing these various movements you will in turn be introduced to leading exponents of these areas including Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Richard Neutra, Philip Johnson, Richard Rogers, Eliel Saarinen, Alvar Alto, Norman Foster, I M Pei, Santiago Calatrava, David Chipperfield, Zaha Hadid.
