Making it new: gender, identity and modernism in English architecture November 24 at 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Elizabeth Darling, Reader in Architectural History in the School of History, Philosophy & Culture, Oxford Brookes University will be giving what looks like a fascinating evening lecture on 24th November. The lecture will be held in Brighton at The Friends Meeting House, Ship Street.

The lecture will consider how new forms of self-consciously modern identities created new forms of architecture in 1920s and 1930s England. It will trace how gay men and women, determinedly single professionals and pioneering social reformers worked with architects to produce transformed and transforming spaces both private and public.
