Publisher's description: The Twentieth Century Society protects outstanding British architecture and design created from 1914 on -- so 2014 marked a century's worth of buildings under its care. Since its inception, the society has safeguarded structures of all types and styles, from neo-Georgian to Art Deco, Modern Movement to pre-fab, and now brutalist and high-tech. These are the 100 finest, one for each year from 1914, representing the Society's full range and quality of work. Each photograph is accompanied by information on the building's history, including why it's a standout, while essays by the likes of Gavin Stamp, Elain Harwood, and Timonthy Brittain-Catlin provide a remarkable overview of modern architecture. The featured buildings include the De La Warr Pavilion, Royal Festival Hall, Barbican housing, Bracken House, Cenotaph, the Firestone Factory, and BT Tower.
