Trans-Atlantic Exchange - British Architecture and the 'Special Relationship'
For details of opening times please visit http://www.test.com/
From language, politics, music and popular culture, Britain and America have long traded ideas across 'the pond', but how has this 'exchange' shaped the buildings we see around us?
In the 19th century the British exported architecture across the globe, however in the 20th century it was the USA that dominated the change we saw in the world and in the post-war years inspired and nurtured some of our greatest architects.
From classical origins to 21st century cityscapes, this panel discussion charts a history of architectural - interplay between the two nations, the landmarks it created and its influences.
With contributions from Charles Hind (H.J. Heinz Curator of Drawings RIBA), Andrew Saint (Author and general editor of the Survey of London), Murray Fraser (Professor of Architecture and Global Culture, Bartlett School of Architecture,UCL) and Sam Jacob (Director, FAT Architecture).
Part of a season of exhibitions and events inspired the BBC series The Brits Who Built the Modern World #BritsExhibition
