Matter In the second part of the book architects (both practitioners and academics) examine the detailed character of place through examples of buildings and settings 25 Sarah Menin in the twentieth century. Many of them draw on ideas employed in the earlier part of the book. The essays are not only studies of buildings, but are also explorative analyses of less familiar examples of modern architecture, teasing out from the physical place, the creative intent (be it philosophical, psychological or artistic) of the architect, and the deep layers of character and meaning in the buildings.

Coleman suggests that the architects of these buildings viewed the site as generative, as a precedent condition that roots or grounds radical invention, and argues that both architects created a place that is modernist. 26 Introduction It is important to examine what is meant by a modernist place. For example, Le Corbusier is held by many to be the father of white modernist architecture, and yet, as Flora Samuel explores in ‘“Awakening” place: Le Corbusier at La Sainte Baume’, his work was far from following any standard modernist agenda.
