Denys Lasdun: the Architects Who Made London with Maxwell Hutchinson

Barnabas Calder

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Denys Lasdun's bold and dramatic designs of the 1960s, like the National Theatre and the Royal College of Physicians, are among the most notable buildings to come from the theoretical energy that made London an important centre for architectural thought in the 1950s. Dr Barnabas Calder, University of Strathclyde, reveals Lasdun's very personal interpretation of archetypal forms, which Lasdun believed to be the essence of architecture and city-making.
