Description The most comprehensive study ever published of Modern Movement architecture in Britain – typified by the buildings’ simple, undecorated aesthetic that is free of historical styles. Encyclopedic in scope and structure, with architect-by-architect entries arranged A–Z and specially commissioned photographs throughout of all the major extant buildings, from private houses and apartment blocks to schools and factories. Modern covers the work of such internationally well-known architects as Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Eric Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff (all of whom went on to work in the United States), as well as such architects as Maxwell Fry, Ernö Goldfinger, Oliver Hill, Berthold Lubetkin and others who changed the vocabulary of architecture in Britain between the wars This book is an essential reference for anyone interested in twentieth-century architecture and culture.
