We present the design for, and implementation of, a flexible and robust parallel modular finite element (FEM) framework called ModFEM. The design is based on reusable modules which use narrow and well-defined interfaces to cooperate. At the top of the architecture, there are problem-dependent modules. Problem--dependent modules can be additionally grouped together by "super-modules". The structure allows for reusing the sequential code for parallel environments, and also supports solving multi-physics and multi-scale problems.
