A stylish celebration of some of the greatest buildings in Britain, from the 20th century and beyond, by the country’s leading organisation for the protection of 20th century architecture.

This fascinating book showcases 100 standout buildings from 1914 onwards, representing the broad variety of 20th century British architecture. The structures celebrated in this book include the Royal Festival Hall, the Hepworth Gallery, Preston Bus Station, Battersea Power Station, the Barbican Estate, the Aquatics Centre and many more.  

The glorious photography in 100 20th Century Buildings is accompanied by insightful text from a range of expert architectural writers and enthusiasts including Alan Powers, Owen Hatherley and Rowan Moore, along with several longer essays on different aspects of the 20th-century built environment: the late Gavin Stamp on the inter-war decades, the much missed Elain Harwood on post-war architecture and Timothy Brittain-Catlin on postmodernism.

From factories to art galleries, churches to health centres, office blocks to individual private dwellings, this book provides a captivating overview of the 20th century built environment.
