Charles Jencks New British Architecture

Charles Jencks, starting from the reconstruction after World War II , reviews the evolution of current English architecture. He describes the styles and methods of the Smithsons, Cedric Price, Norman Foster, Archigram, James Stirling, and Ralph Erskine. Beginning at the Townscape movement and shifting to Brutalism, Pop Art, and Neo-Palladianism, Jencks discusses changing social trends, political tendencies, and architectural ideas that affected, advanced, and eventually asphyxiated the aspirations of each era.
