Timothy Brittain-Catlin explores the Edwardians and their houses.

About this event

Timothy Brittain-Catlin is well known for his writings and work on A.W.N. Pugin and the domestic architecture of early Victorian Britain. This lecture is based on his recent book, The Edwardians and their Houses: The New Life of Old England. Edwardian domestic architecture was beautiful and varied in style and the book provides a radical overview of the subject that show how this period offered innovative new building types for weekends, sport and suburban living and what that reveals about Edwardian attitudes to old architecture, health and science. He discusses how when it comes to Edwardian architecture, there is still much to discover. Even very small buildings reflect contemporary preoccupations and, in particular, the land reform ideas of the ruling Liberal Party.
