WHAT WE’RE SEEING
The Twentieth Century Society is holding a series of lectures to reassess the reputations of some of Britain’s most prolific modern architects. The first talk of the three-part series is about the architect, planner and landscape designer Frederick Gibberd. Frederick Gibberd (1908-84) was one of the major figures of his generation, with a large and varied practice that included housing, planning and the design of the Catholic Cathedral in Liverpool. (He also happens to be the grandfather of Matt Gibberd, one of the Directors of The Modern House.) Christine Manley, who is studying for a PhD in Architectural History at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, will be discussing Gibberd’s planning and design at Harlow New Town. The following lectures will focus on Richard Seifert on 21 March and and Denys Lasdun on 26 March.
The lecture series will be taking place at The Gallery, 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ between 6:30pm and 8pm.
