A style guide to Twentieth Century Architecture: Neo-Georgian  *SOLD OUT*

Thursday 23rd 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 Neo-Georgian with Julian Holder and Elizabeth McKellar.

Neo-Georgian was the background architecture of the twentieth century with a wide variety of applications for private and public design, including post offices, schools, pubs and banks, typically with red brick and white sash windows. The speakers were the editors of Neo-Georgian Architecture 1880-1970: a reappraisal, published in 2016
