International Style was a result of the Modern Movement in the early 20th century. See: Le Corbusier, Gropius, Bauhaus. Modern Architecture is a result of the International Style which was a reactionary movement against the Neo Classical buildings popular at the turn of the century. Designers like Corbu utilized the machine aesthetic to come up with pragmatic utilitarian design stripped away of all extraneous ornamentation that could help to create housing for the displaced victims of WW1 by using production-line techniques to lower costs. Modern Architecture today relates to the utilization of the latest technologies in building design and construction systems and is the opposite of Historicist duplication of past architectural styles.
