The Norm: 1960s Modern Movement Architecture

The 1960s is the last decade of the Modern Movement in Britain. It is now completely mainstream and part of the Brave New World of innovation and technology.  It also coincides with an economic boom. This can be seen in a proliferation of commercial buildings and a growth in public architecture, including the new universities to cater for the post-war baby boom generation and of course, public housing.
