The 20th century is, architecturally speaking, without doubt the most dynamic and constantly evolving century yet. The sheer pace of change in terms of style, materials and methods has given rise to new styles, new architectural languages and new generations of inspired architects. All of this change has also allowed true genius to flower. Each day, this course will introduce some key names whose work still inspires and evokes a range of responses. The architects and practices under scrutiny will include Peter Behrens, Henry van de Velde, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, Frank Lloyd Wright, Harry Glück, Cedric Price, Foreign Office Architects, Harry Seidler, Zaha Hadid and Shigeru Ban.
