Under the Influence: Smiljan Radic's Casa Pite and Philip Johnson's Glass House

To coincide with the publication of Ornament is Crime by our founders, Matt Gibberd and Albert Hill, we’re running a weekly feature that showcases some of the beautiful black-and-white photography from the book.

Modern houses built at different times and in different countries are pictured alongside each other, to demonstrate how the central themes of Modernism have remained remarkably consistent and still have resonance in today’s residential architecture.
