The Modernist is an iconic new building in the Rotterdam Central District combining offices, apartments and retail spaces. The Modernist is the 21st-century interpretation by architectural office MVRDV of the modernist architecture that started adorning the city of Rotterdam right after WW2.
More than anything modernist architecture values functionality. It is in fact its starting point and what ultimately defines it – form follows function. The visual identity for The Modernist is based on the same principle. Strong and sleek and at the same time elegant and timeless.
