What Did 1960s Architecture Do for Us?

Part of Concrete Dreams Weekend

As our iconic buildings turn 50, we invite speakers to tell us about their favourite 1960s building and why this period of architecture divides public opinion.

Hear from writers and architecture critics who have particularly close relationships to 1960s buildings as they explore inspired intentions and visions.

Queen Elizabeth Hall and Hayward Gallery were both built in the late 1960s as part of large-scale, public building schemes, which have come to signify a time of unprecedented development in London.

This debate is followed by a short discussion and time for audience questions.
