The Design and Construction of Modern Buildings

Summarising the tendency of to-day in the planning and construction of buildings it may be said that simplicity and cheapness combined with utility are the dominating factors, and little importance is attached to the splendour of the fagade, as has been customary previously. The modern style is preferred and is suitable both for frame structures and simple planning. S. Bylander
