This is an insightful collection of essays looking at the work of two of 20th-century Britain's most influential and controversial architects. Striving to adapt the progressive ideas of the pre-war modern movement to the specific human needs of post-war reconstruction, Alison (1928-1993) and Peter Smithson (1923-2003) were among the most influential and controversial architects of the 20th-century. As younger members of CIAM (Congres Internationaux d'Architecture Moderne), and as founding members of Team 10, they were at the heart of the debate on the future course of Modern Architecture. This book brings together the most important published essays about the career of these British architects, including contributions by Rayner Banham, Kenneth Frampton, Beatriz Colomina and Luisa Hutton.
