CONFERENCE: For one hundred years, the architecture of Britain in the decades either side of 1914 has been neglected by scholars and largely viewed in negative terms.

Based on the fact that 1914 acts as the chronological division point between the coverage of the Victorian and Twentieth Century Societies, this one-day conference presented jointly by the two societies aims to set out the stylistic tendencies of the time, plus wider movements in design and urbanism. It will cast light into the shadows that have lain over the period for so long.


Speakers include Andrew Saint, Michael Hall, Alan Powers, Sabrina Rahman, Elain Harwood, Mark Swenarton, Jenny McLeod and Gavin Stamp.

Organised in collaboration with the Victorian Society and the Twentieth Century Society.

An optional buffet lunch is available at the Polish Club, Princes Gate; £65 including lunch, £45 excluding lunch, students £55 including lunch, £35 excluding lunch.
