A style of architecture originating in Europe in the 1920s. The international architecture design was very functional and emphasized buildings constructed of steel, reinforced concrete, and glass. The houses had smooth white surfaces with very large integral wall windows and no decoration. Also called the Bauhaus style, their functionality emphasized that "less is more". International architecture was a reaction to the highly decorated houses of the Victorian period.
