Modernist 'marvels'

Modernist architecture was capable of delivering great excitement, and great squalor.  This 'world-wide tour in ten slides' of some of the modern era's 'marvels' gives you a bit of both.

On which side would you place the Farnsworth House, by Mies van der Rohe, which is included as one of the ten? 

                    Farnsworth

You might be surprised to learn that it wasn't built in Omaha last year, but in Plano Illinois in 1945-51.
