Modernisme and Noucentisme were not antithetical. One came after the other. In fact, Modernisme differs from Jugendstil and Art Deco essentially by virtue of the place where it developed: Barcelona. The city would not have been possible without the noucentistes unifying idea, a notion that was unknown to the modernistes before them. The Noucentista ideology was capable of embracing in its overall cultural and political project the multifaceted and fragmentary whole of Modernisme.
