Mies Van Der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright and Ray and Charles Eames have been the most renowned and influential architects of Modern Houses  . The design of this particular class isn’t so tough to understand. Massive expanses of glasses, straight connections to outdoor ways, shallow or flat-pitched roofs, enough space around the building and unornamented and plain walls are special features of this style plans.
