A style guide to 20th Century Architecture: Modernism in the 1930’s and Brutalism

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.

Guest speakers will unpack Modernism in the 1930s and Brutalism:

Modernism in the 1930s – Alan Powers

Modernism was meant to be more than a style – in fact the end of styles as we know them. It was a mission and a vision, rooted in formulae but reaching for eternity. Was it destined to become a set of design clichés, like any other style, or did it achieve liberation?

Brutalism – 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.
