Denys Lasdun MiM Mini Guide No 4


Denys Lasdun Mini Guide by Modernism-in-Metroland

A new edition to Modernism-in-Metroland’s mini guides.

Joshua Abbott, the creator of the hugely popular web and Instagram site and co-author of London Underground 1924-61  explains that the book explores Lasden’s work ‘from the 1930s until his death in 2001, which grew in scale and prestige as Lasdun became one of the most lauded architects of his era.’

From early projects like 32 Newton Road, through his social housing work of the 1950s, the university schemes of the 1960s and to the illustrious Royal College of Physicians and the National Theatre commissions, the guide documents the changes in style and function of Lasdun’s work.

The guide brings together all of Lasdun’s surviving projects in London plus his university work from Cambridge and Norwich. It features colour photographs and histories of the buildings featured and discussion of Lasdun’s work from further afield.’
