Architecture in London between the Wars: The meaning of Modern
In the 1930s, was Modern architecture a heroic ‘Battle of the Styles’ as some have suggested, or a reversion to national type?
Alan Powers, former chairman of the 20th Century Society, will look at both sides of the question, illustrating some of the famous landmarks of the period in London, such as Battersea Power Station, Peter Jones and the London Underground, and some notable lost and unbuilt projects.
