Understanding architecture since 1914 involves understanding the meaning of labels and their underlying meaning. While these are widely used, they represent a mixture of forgotten intentions, opportunistic adoptions, post-rationalisations and misapplications.

Six speakers will unpack the identity of six styles that have dominated the period and clear away some of the fog. This week Art Deco with Ian McInnes.

The architecture of arterial roads and suburban shopping parades, of  Parisian glamour and American sleekness. Once condemned for being not properly modern, Art Deco remains a complex but appealing ‘in between’ category
