Do you know the difference between "contemporary" and "modern" architecture? Which principles and/or elements specifically make them different??

I thought I knew. We see new styles of architecture all around Phoenix & Scottsdale as new residents with more appreciation and affinity for either move to our area from other metropolitan cities across the US, Europe & beyond. Places like Desert Mountain & parts of North Central Phoenix, with its neat rows of Ralph Haver homes, have drawn reproductions of varying elements of both to Arcadia, Paradise Valley, McCormick Ranch and to even master-planned communities like Desert Ridge & DC Ranch.

My own listing in McCormick Ranch (see it here), stands out from it's mostly Spanish-style neighbors on the block:

MLS# 5390423 MLS# 5390423

Here's how one design firm differentiates contemporary architecture from modern architecture

Do you think you can pinpoint the style of architecture of my listing? I'd love to hear what you've decided... ;)
