Neomodern architecture continues modernism as a dominant form of architecture in 20th and 21st centuries, especially in corporate offices. It tends to be used for certain segments of buildings. Residential houses tend to embrace neo-historical and neo-eclectic styles, for instance, and major monuments today most often opt for starchitect inspired uniqueness.
Neomodern architecture shares many of the basic characteristics of modernism. Both reject the postmodern ornamentation, decorations, and deliberate attempts to imitate the past. Neomodern buildings, like modern ones, are designed to be largely monolithic and functional.
