Style Wars, LFA 2019: Amin Taha, Charles Holland, John Goodall and Tanvir Hasan on boundaries of style

  • | Donald Insall Associates

The history of architecture is full of boundaries created by the way it has been separated into different, distinct periods and movements. Georgian versus Victorian. Modernist versus Post-Modernist. So strong are these boundaries that we even refer to style wars when advocating for the virtues of a particular way of approaching architecture versus another.

Architects working within historic settings are often engrossed in discussions in and around the perceived strengths and weaknesses of past architecture and the boundaries between old and new. To shed more light on how such boundaries come to play in the current assessments in restoring and extending sensitive or protected buildings, we are hosting a panel discussion called “Style Wars: Boundaries, past and present” as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2019 programme.
