The 20th Century period 1910-1999
British architecture of the early twentieth century (in advance of the Great War) continued the architectural styling of the late-Victorian period. It wasn't until after World War 1, that Britain embraced ‘Modernist architecture’, a style which had developed and evolved in Continental Europe. Modernism in its most general sense is a term that applies to all modern architecture of the twentieth century. A number of 'modern' styles emerged in the 1920s and 1930s in Europe, and spread across to Britain, being; Art Deco, Streamlined Moderne and the International Style, although there are many different modern styles. These styles are not distinct styles and they blur at the boundaries and represent something more like a spectrum that a set of distinct categories
Our Works related to this period...
PAYE pioneer new techniques for preserving later styles of architecture and understand that all buildings require conservation, not just those of traditionally ‘important’ time periods. Much of our work in this period is in relation to preventative works, surveying facades to understand the issues at play. We constantly look to better understand modern materials and in turn look to how we can preserve them
