A style guide to 20th Century Architecture: Modernism after 1945 and Neo-Georgian

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 after 1945 and Neo-Georgian:

Modernism after 1945 – Elain Harwood

There have been many Modernisms. In the years after 1945, Brutalism was just one version, and there was a wide variety of approaches to structure, materials and form, including the typical styles of the Festival of Britain and the early Welfare State. Elain Harwood was recently awarded the Alice Davis Hitchcock medal for her book Space, Hope and Brutalism.

Neo-Georgian – Speakers to be confirmed

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.
