The Modernist is a quarterly printed publication about 20th-century modernist architecture and design. Published in the North of England, it is now spreading its elegant tentacles around the world.


This issue, Killer, focuses on the visual reminders of past conflicts — the work of Friedrich Tamms, Organization Todt, or a myriad of defence planners across the world — are the most explicit reminder of the role of buildings in the service of death.


In this issue:


  • The sprawling ruins of what was once the worlds’ largest dynamite factory at the Ardeer in Scotland
  • The legacy of the Cold War
  • An alternative look at Chernobyl Power Station
  • The impending death of Berlin’s Mäusebunker
