Escaping to Modernism

Modernist Escapes: An Architectural Travel Guide

Stefi Orazi


Designed by famous architects, many modernist buildings all over the world are open to visit or even for overnight stays. From Bauhaus to Brutalist, over 130 of them are featured here with full colour photography of the exteriors and interiors revealing many beautiful details such as the bright red drum fireplace in Giancarlo de Carlo’s Ca’ Romanino in Urbino, Italy or the Constructivist-like staircase in Renaat Braem’s house and studio in Antwerp, Belgium. Each building is accompanied by information on its history. This is both great escapist reading and a practical guide to available options if you’re looking for a unique holiday experience.
