Twentieth Century Society lectures Spring 2013
Attitudes to the history of architecture are always changing, and some who have been overlooked return to prominence when research reveals their interest and importance. In the six spring lectures, the speakers will reinterpret individuals who made a significant contribution to the architecture of their time but remain controversial and often misunderstood. Many of them belong to the same generation, born in the years between 1907 and 1914, so that by the time they had major building opportunities after the war, a younger generation was already challenging their beliefs and principles, and in most cases they died before a new generation of enthusiasts had recognised their value.
