Triumphs, Carbuncles and Hopeful Monsters – The British vs Modern Architecture

Date

For details of opening times please visit http://www.test.com/

30 year ago HRH Prince Charles made a speech that is often credited with transforming attitudes to modern architecture. It triggered a national debate, still raging in places today about what modern British buildings ought to look like, but how much did it really change what got built? How much did it reflect popular opinion?

Across the past century, architecture in this country has shifted courses many times over in response to huge technological, economic and social changes, was this single speech in anyway comparable to other architectural schisms?

Lively panel discussion charting the many changing faces of modern British architecture and shifting attitudes towards it across the course of the 20th century.

Speakers Owen Hatherley (Author and writer), Catherine Croft (Director, Twentieth Century Society), Hugh Pearman (Editor, RIBA Journal) and Daisy Froud (AOC) chart a very British relationship with modern architecture. Chaired by Charlie Luxton (TV presenter and designer). 

Part of a season of exhibitions and events inspired the BBC series The Brits Who Built the Modern World #BritsExhibition
