Description

Modernist Escapes: An Architectural Travel Guide, as its name implies, is a fascinating guidebook that leads you to the hidden gems of modernist architecture around the world. The sites presented in the book offer inspiring experiences for armchair travellers and are also well-suited as real-life travel destinations, as the buildings are all open to a visit or even a longer stay. Published by the art publishing house Prestel, the book was authored by the English designer Stefi Orazi, who has written several books on architecture.

Modernist fans will want to dive right into the pages of this guide to remarkable buildings designed by famous architects from Alvar Aalto to Charlie Zehnder. Featuring over 130 unique structures that span the globe, this book covers the full spectrum of modernist principles from Bauhaus to Brutalism. Author and designer Stefi Orazi chooses buildings that are open to the public, with some even available for overnight stays.

Full-colour photography of the exterior and interiors highlight incredible details such as the bright red drum fireplace in Giancarlo de Carlo’s Ca’ Romanino, Urbino, Italy, or the constructivist-like staircase in Renaat Braem’s house and studio in Antwerp, Belgium. Each building is accompanied by informative text offering visitor information and insights into its history. Whether you're looking for a unique holiday experience or a global overview of Modernist architecture, Modernist Escapes stylishly documents these unforgettable spaces.
