Launching the new architecture gallery, The Brits Who Built The Modern World, 1950-2012 tells the the fascinating global story of how British architecture underwent a transformation in the post-war years to become world-leading in the second half of the 20th century.
From Beijing to New York, airports to museums, Foster to Rogers, this era of vast change saw a generation of British architects redefining the world’s cities and creating extraordinary buildings that put British architecture back on the world map. The exhibition charts what was created and where, revealing the buildings, their designers, influences and the style they inspired. It explores the reasons behind this global success story through over 190 photographs, drawings, models and other material, taken from RIBA's incredible collections and key architectural practices.
The exhibition is part of a RIBA season of exhibitions and events inspired by the BBC series The Brits Who Built The Modern World.
