BRITISH BUILDING STYLES
13. Post-war Modernist
Ernő Goldfinger’s Trellick Tower (left, 1972) recalls Walter Gropius’s Bauhaus movement (1919) and Le Corbusier. Minimalism meets steel, glass and reinforced concrete. The Lloyd’s building by Richard Rogers (1986) popularised exterior lifts and ducts. Norman Foster’s Sage Gateshead (2004) reflects a modern taste for computer-designed curves.
