|Lecture:||Art Deco Architecture – A Worldwide Phenomenon & The British Response- Mike Ho|
|Start Date:||21st January 2018|
|Under 18s:||£14.00 What's included?|
With a few notable exceptions, Art Deco architecture is born in Northern France as a response to the needs of post WW1 reconstruction. As it travels around the world, via the USA, it metamorphoses into a number of highly idiosyncratic and recognizable styles. It becomes synonymous with Hollywood, luxury, speed and glamour. Against the backdrop of its bewildering regional variations, the onslaught of International Modernism, the somewhat muted and less than enthusiastic embracing of this style by Britain will be examined.

In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
