Unlike the West that generally considers the void as negative; the East considers that void has a supreme value and the values of everything lie in relationships. Based on this kind of cultural differences, the East and the West evolved their own architectures without exchanges until 16th century.This book is a try to interpret Modernism through a cultural viewpoint instead of that of technological Industrial Revolution. While modernism in Europe created new architecture by adopting Eastern thought since the beginning of the 20th century, the architecture that shows the well-established influence of Western thought appeared in the East in the 1980s.

In this succinct and thoughtful exploration of the origins of modernism, Hyunjoon Yoo provides a compelling challenge to the accepted interpretation focusing entirely on European sources. His close and perceptive analysis of spatial concepts underlying works of modern architecture supports the proposition that modernism has clearly evolved from traditional and contemporary eastern culture as well as historic precedents of the west. --Prof. Andrea Leers of Harvard University
