Abstract / Description of output
This article investigates in detail two theatres by Peter Moro, the leading architect of theatres in Britain between the late 1950s and 1970s. Intended not only to root Moro's work in its context, it also uses these buildings as a focus with which to reflect critically on Modernism in 1960s and 1970s Britain, arguing that Moro took up ideas of a 'rich' Modernism as expounded by Otto Salvisberg and Berthold Lubetkin. These ideas, it is argued, are ideally suited to theatre architecture.
