100 Buildings, 100 Years

Susannah Charlton & Elain Harwood

100 British buildings celebrating the brilliant and diverse architecture of the last 100 years.

The 100 buildings – nominated by C20 Society members and supporters – showcase the broad variety of architectural talent in Britain from 1914 to 2014. They also show the range of buildings and design that the C20 Society exists to protect.

The structures celebrated in this book include the Royal Festival Hall, the Hepworth Gallery, Preston Bus Station, Battersea Power Station, the Barbican Estate and the Aquatics Centre. The nominations of the buildings are written by noted experts and enthusiasts in the field of architecture, heritage and design, including Gavin Stamp, Elain Harwood, Alan Powers, Owen Hatherley, Oliver Wainwright and Rowan Moore. Essays on the Inter-war Decades, Post-war Architecture and Postmdernism give context to the buildings featured.
