Join us on Thursday for our sixth and final Autumn Lecture in the series 'Twentieth Century Architects' at the Gallery, 70 Cowcross Street, London.
Kenneth Powell, a prolific author and former director of the Twentieth Century Society, will be talking about Arup Associates, a major presence on the British architectural scene for more than half a century.
Arup emerged from the famous engineering consultancy founded by Ove Arup in 1946 and reflected Arup's own vision of 'total design', formed in the 1930s in his ground-breaking collaborations with Berthold Lubetkin.
From early groundbreaking factories to a series of university commissions, innovative offices, cultural projects, and social housing projects - pictured is their Grade II-listed Point Royal in Bracknell, 1959-64 - the practice moved on to become a major player on the London development scene with its projects at Finsbury Avenue and Broadgate.
Powell's book Arup Associates was published by the C20 Society, @ and @ Publishing. It is fully illustrated with images from the Arup archive and stunning new photography offering a new perspective on an exceptional body of work.
