Description


Explores how cultural exchange after World War II produced twentieth-century British and Italian architecture.
 
In the aftermath of World War II’s devastation, Italy and the United Kingdom reimagined urban space. Post-war Architecture Between Italy and the UK explores how architects, urbanists, and historians in both countries collaborated around the shared need to rebuild. The authors discuss the far-reaching effects of this cultural exchange, including the influence of historic Italian town centers on British public space and the origin of postmodernism in clashes between British critics and Italian architects. Drawing on a wealth of archival materials, this volume offers new insights into architectural history in post-war Europe.
