Elisabeth Frink: Lectures
WHEN MODERN ARCHITECTURE GOT HIGH: THE POST-WAR REALISATION OF THE MODERNIST ARCHITECTURAL PROJECT
Wednesday 2 December
6 - 7pm
Dr. Steve Parnell, architect and architectural critic.
The reconstruction of Britain in the immediate post-war years was a golden age for architects as architecture represented the possibility of actually building a new world, a promised utopia. Setting Frink’s public commissions in context, the lecture will explore how architects responded to this challenge with reference to some of the defining moments and buildings of the 1950s and ‘60s.
