A style guide to Twentieth Century Architecture: Brutalism *SOLD OUT*

Thursday 9th February 2017 - Doors open 6.15pm for drinks and a browse of our publications. Lectures start at 6.30pm

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 Brutalism with Barnabas Calder.

The hot word of the blogosphere, Brutalism is a term of approval and abuse, whose meaning has changed since the word first gained currency in the early 1950s. Barnabas Calder, author of Raw Concrete: The Beauty of Brutalism brings us up to speed.
