22 October 2008

Where early Modernism rejected the typical city, proposing its erasure and replacement by wholly new and different forms, post-war British Modernism celebrated the street life and structures of cities as found, starting a re-discovery of the urban that continues today. Speakers include architectural historian Joseph Rykwert, former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone and architects Nigel Coates and Denise Scott Brown.
