Twentieth Century Architecture 14: Building for Business is our latest biennial journal, edited by Elain Harwood and Alan Powers. It features a set of peer reviewed academic essays taking forwards the bounds of research in C20 architecture.
Libraries, fire stations, health centres, town halls and police stations – once a stable presence in the high streets of Britain, are now threatened by demolition or insensitive conversion. They embodied high standards of materials and craftsmanship that formed the image of public service.
100 20th-Century Gardens and Landscapes celebrates and outstanding area of British design since 1914.
Leading expert and passionate advocate of modern British architecture Elain Harwood gives the best overview of British architecture from 1938 to 1963 – mid-century buildings.
This is the first major study of John Outram, whose decorative yet elemental architecture has captured the popular imagination. Outram launched his own architectural practice in 1974, soon securing a reputation for innovative, creative and monumental buildings. Their brilliant colours and exuberant gestures earned him a reputation as a post-modernist, but this book explores their deeper background in architectural history, metaphysics and mythology.
Peter Moro and his colleagues were responsible for exceptional buildings between the 1930s and the 1980s, including theatres, one-off houses, council housing, and schools. Based on detailed archival research and fully illustrated, this book sets their work in context and enriches our understanding of the experience of modernism in Britain.
