100 Buildings, 100 Years [9781849941938]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The Twentieth Century Society protects outstanding architecture and design dating from 1914 onwards, so in 2014 it is marking 100 years of buildings under its protection. Originally founded as the Thirties Society in 1979, its first major case was the fabulous Art Deco Firestone factory on the Great West Road. Its remit has always been to protect the best of all types and styles of architecture and design from neo-Georgian to Art Deco, Modern Movement to pre-fab, and its campaigns now extend to brutalist and high-tech buildings. This book showcases photographs of 100 buildings - one for each year from 1914 - which represent the range and quality of work the Society protects and the amazing range of fascinating buildings we have in Britain. Each photograph is accompanied by information about the building, including why it stands out in a 100 years of architecture. The authors include noted experts in the fields of architecture, heritage and design, including Gavin Stamp, Alan Powers, Owen Hatherley and Rowan Moore. In addition, the book includes the best overview of modern architecture with essays on The Inter-war Decades (Gavin Stamp), Post-war Architecture (Elain Harwood) and Postmodernism (Timonthy Brittain-Catlin). Some of the buildings featured in the book include De La Warr Pavilion, Royal Festival Hall, Barbican housing, Bracken House, Cenotaph, the Firestone Factory, BT Tower, and pre-fabs.
