BALT & C20 Society 2023 Lecture II: Giles Gilbert Scott and the Definition of Modernity Between the Wars
Giles Gilbert Scott's reputation reached its peak in the 1920s and '30s, when he was commissioned to design the red telephone kiosk, the facade of Battersea Power Station, and libraries for Oxford and Cambridge. When critics talked about his architecture, they spoke about its innovation. This talk will explore what made Scott's architecture stand out from that of his contemporaries and allowed him to create buildings that seemed both modern and familiar.
