Ian Nairn's Modern Buildings in London

A London Historians Event

Tuesday 14 November, 7.00 – 8.30pm
Online talk by Travis Elborough via Zoom.

This talk is based partially on the book Modern Buildings in London (1964) by Ian Nairn, now re-published by Notting Hill Editions, with an introduction by our speaker Travis Elborough. The book is based on both the inter-war and post-WW2 period. Travis will talk about Nairn’s architectural opinions, choices, prejudices and also the man himself.

The talk will be about 45 minutes followed by some Q & A.
