What Defines Modern and Contemporary Condos?

Modern and contemporary are different terms that are often used interchangeably.

Modernism was a design movement that sprung to life in the early 1900s, continuing forward to the Mid-Century Modern Movement that was popular from the late 1940s to the very early 1970s. From bold angles to huge windows, modern design is an umbrella from which many offshoots have sprouted.

Contemporary design basically means that which is new, or of the moment. But it has broadly come to represent new design trends that began in the 1970s, representing a break from typical styles that came before.

Put it all together and modern and contemporary as a combined category means that which breaks away from older and more traditional forms, such as Colonial, Victorian or Federal architecture.

Summing it All Up

If Modernism began over 100 years ago and Contemporary styles include the present, than the combined phrase certainly covers a whole lot of territory.

But just think of it this way: Those historic DC row houses represent tradition while the glass and steel tower next-door with its abstract angles can be safely placed in the modern and contemporary category. To learn more, call District Partners at Compass, 202-798-3600.
