Modern architecture takes on many forms and can be viewed in as many ways. It is a style that emerged in the early half of the 20th century and became dominate after the WWII.
We view modern architecture as an expression of new technologies in construction and advances in engineering along with the social implications of how we relate and interact with each other and how that impacts our idea of architectural design.
Modern architecture takes the restraints off of how as a collective we perceived what a home or building can be. Modern architecture give us the ability to take traditional spaces and morph them into new modern spaces for today's world. Rooms will have the ability to fold into each other thus creating new versatile rooms. This view of intertwining movement of people and spaces is a result of perceiving life in fresh and unencumbered ways.
