Charles Jencks New British Architecture-clip_1697

Charles Jencks describes the architectural scene in London after 1951 as an era of reinvention, focused on social housing. He describes how the Greater London Council implemented current planning theories at an urban scale resulting in failure. Jencks presents the Smithsons as a radical alternative to acceptable British norms and the emergence of Brutalism as a signifier of cultural change. He reviews Brutalism’s evolution through the projects of Dennis Lasden and others.
