Event description

Description

Elizabeth Darling will give us a broad overview of the celebrated Isokon architect Wells Coates, his background and many important achievements besides Lawn Road Flats. Drinks will be served.

Elizabeth Darling is based at Oxford Brookes University and works on 20th century British architectural history with a particular interest in inter-war modernism, social housing, and gender. Her book on British architectural modernism, Re-forming Britain: Narratives of Modernity before Reconstruction, was published by Routledge in early 2007 while an edited volume (with Lesley Whitworth), Women and the Making of Built Space in England, 1870-1950 was published by Ashgate in autumn 2007. Her most recent publication is Wells Coates (RIBA Publishing, 2012). Forthcoming work includes a discussion of Modernism and the Neo-Georgian in 1930s England, and the introduction to a new edition of Elizabeth Denby's 1938 book Europe Rehoused.
