The Work of Richard Seifert & Denys Lasdun: A Comparative Study of Their Buildings and Reputations.

The research focuses upon the reactions and commentaries of architectural critics and journalists to the post-war work of the architects Richard Seifert and Denys Lasdun. It will analyse critical responses to the innovative buildings designed by these two Brutalist architects and their practices recorded in architectural journals, newspapers and other period sources from the Sixties and Seventies, while examining why these responses were very different in character.

The research will also encompass a limited number of interviews with architectural critics, journalists, architects and contemporaries whose perspectives on the work of Seifert & Lasdun may enhance understanding of the context in which these commentators were working.
