13. Post-war Mod­ernist

The Oldie - - READERS' LETTERS - Il­lus­tra­tion: Nesta Fitzger­ald

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.
