Beyond Bauhaus - Modernism In Britain 1933 to 1966

Beyond Bauhaus - Modernism In Britain 1933 to 1966

The 1930s were a pivotal decade for British avantgarde architecture. Despite the relative paucity of modernist buildings being commissioned, by 1937 the country had, for a brief moment, become the epicentre of progressive contemporary architecture in Europe.

This exhibition revisits the impact of three notable Bauhaus émigrés: Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and László Moholy-Nagy. Centred on the brief period of 1934-37, when they came to live and work in Britain, it traces this fertile moment in British architectural history and considers where its legacy has had the most enduring impact.

Drawing on the RIBA’s unique and world-class collections, little known and rarely shown works by the three ex-Bauhaus tutors will be displayed alongside works by young British architects practising at the time, including Maxwell Fry, FRS Yorke, Mary Crowley, Leslie Martin and Sadie Speight.
