Browse International style houses for sale in Los Angeles, CA.
International style, or internationalism, dates back to the 1920s and 1930s in Europe as the world was recovering from World War and was used to rebuild cities affected by the war due to its effective and economical nature. This style is closely related to modernism and inspired by the industrial revolution.
When it arrived in the US, International style wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms - people thought it was cold, ugly, and unappealing - until after World War II when commercial and urban buildings embraced the design. When the 70s arrived, it became unpopular again and was regarded as boring, cheap, and grungy. Today, however, we can still see hints of Internationalism in modern homes with rectangular forms, cleans lines, functional materials, and large glass features.
