Lovers of Modernism, I need your help!

I am about to start writing my final paper for one of my architecture history classes and have quite an easy topic to discuss: Trace early Modern Architecture, discuss what you consider to be its theoretical basis , and show what you believe to bethe key monuments best exemplifying Modernism. Conclude with a short discussion of the principal short-comings of early Modernism and assess the arguments of it's most vocal critics.

I was planning on starting in the Art Noveau with Mackintosh's Glasgow School of art, move through works such as the fagus shoe factory, etc etc etc.
When I get home from work, I will post the rest of the buildings I consider noteworthy. What do you guys think?

I know how much knowledge some of you have on the subject (Steely), thats what seperates SSP.
I shut my eyes in order to see.
