Precursors of High Tech

From the Iron Bridge of 1779, the world’s first all metal prefabricated structure, through metal framed glasshouses, Victorian train sheds, Crystal Palace, the Festival of Britain to the Smithson’s divisive school at Hunstanton we show examples of “high tech” architecture of the day.
