New British Architecture
By Robert Maxwell
The 1950’s saw a significant change in the direction of British architecture. For several decades it had looked like the poor relation of the Modern Movement. Then, to the general reaction against rationalist architecture it contributed an essential ingredient: concrete. BRUTALISM was born.
New British Architecture examines fifty examples of British architecture, mostly from the 1950’s. Private houses, university, civic, cultural, commercial and transport buildings, sports centres, hospitals and schools – all are discussed in detail with plans, elevations and a wide range of photographs.
