Explore architecture and design from 1850 to 1980 and discover the revolutionaries whose ideas and works secure their place in design history. We will look at architecture and design development in Russia, Europe and North America, the context and implications culturally, politically, socially, and technologically. We will reflect on the contribution of design practitioners during peacetime and wartime, such as Voysey, Le Corbusier and El Lissitsky; looking at important cultural events such as The Festival of Britain. We will study the contribution of each to dominant design throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, their aesthetics and context in terms of building and design.
