He influenced modernism’s ambivalence regarding “tradition” and contemporary practice and the importance of technology in modernist design and ideology. This ‘tradition-modernity versus identity’ challange, represents one of the most essential elements in his architectural design and theoretical background of his work. By this, he influenced future generations of architects and paved the path for influential post-war architects as Kenzo Tange, Tadao Ando, and Toyo Ito. Is evident how in Maekawa works, the architectural space and form are being created in relation to architectural identity, in his case, Japanese architectural identity. Maekawa’s interests can be analyse from two sides: firstly from the idea that the creation of a new modern nation as essential to put Japan into the twentieth century.
The movement resulted to the rise of modern architects that were already inpatient with the traditional systems that had greatly influenced designs and limited architecture to traditional methods.

The movement did however have some interesting styles that it used, buildings would be combined from straight lines with various forms such as cylinders, squares, rectangles, cubes. The Constructivist architecture movement showed and took advantage of the possibilities of new materials. You would have seen steel frames supporting large areas of glass and joints between various parts of buildings would be visible to see rather than hidden The idea was to experiment with materials such as glass and they done this by the means of bending it around a building rather than normal square pieces of glass.
The German art and design school, The Bauhaus, was one of the most influential modernist art schools, one of whose approach to teaching and understanding art’s relationship to technology and society had a major impact in United States and Europe, long after it closed. The motivation behind the creation of the Bauhaus lay in anxieties about the soullessness of manufacturing in the 19th century, and in fears about art’s loss of purpose in society. Emerged in the mid 1920, the Bauhaus was shaped by the late 19th and early 20th movements and trends, which had sought to level the distinction between applied and fine arts and to reunite manufacturing and creativity. This fact is reflected in the romantic medievalism of the school’s early years,

Postmodernism At the end of the last quarter of the twentieth century, an architectural, and artistic and design stream emerged to create a space for creativity and innovation in freedom of form, design and eclecticism in response to the rigidity of the modernity movement (p10, 2003, Larousse Nouveau) in some respects, in literary criticism and social sciences (Al-Masiri, 2003, p. 81). Jencks Charles used this term in Architecture for the first time in 1973 in an analytical and critical way in an article entitled "Modern architecture of the modern architecture", In 1977, Genghis also noted in his book) Jencks, 1975 (N2) (, "The language of postmodern architecture" (p.89, 1977, Jencks), and the term was used extensively in the writings of architects
