Publisher Description

For the most part, architectural history in Britain is the story of gradual change and evolution, of long term trends that give meaning to events as they unfold, even moments of apparent crescendo and climax. From time to time, however, there comes a tipping point when old certainties are overturned, new ideas break free and the clock of history is reset: we call this a Year Zero. This series of essays invites writers, critics, historians and architects to identify and reflect on a single Year Zero – when the trajectories of architectural and broader history connect and coincide and the status quo is changed forever. 


Art historian Alan Powers, who wrote Bauhaus Goes West (Thames and Hudson) which will be published in 2019, says that the thoughtful spirit of 1937 has in many ways  returned in 2019.
