Discuss the vision of friendly modernism that is more accessible to mainstream tastes while adhering to modernist design principles like efficiency, cost, space and sustainability.



Welcome to Modernism for the Masses. My vision is modernism outside of the cold aluminum box. I know many people that want a home with a cool design that is efficient and inexpensive, but would like to live in a warm, inviting atmosphere. This is a place to discuss how to warm up modernism for more mainstream tastes.

- How can we build homes based on modernist values that fit into exisiting neighborhoods?

- Is there a way to integrate certain traditional design elements i.e. arts and crafts, ranch, post and beam, etc. with modernist mores of sustainability, space efficiency, integration with the site, etc.?

- Can we create highly desirable living places that boost the value of established neighborhoods that might even be in decline?

This is the place for discourse on these issues. It will be exciting to get everyone's thoughts on these and other questions.

Thanks for visiting!
