New Exhibition: The Brits Who Built the Modern World

Read Article
On February 13, 2014, the Royal Institute of British Architects inaugurated a new gallery in its central London headquarters with “The Brits Who Built the Modern World.” Drawing on a deep inventory of drawings, models, photographs, and film, the exhibition tells the story of how six influential British architects, all of whom were born within five years of one another in the 1930s, put their own unique stamp on modernism in the latter half of the 20th century.
