At the time of his death in 2017, our former chairman Gavin Stamp was at work on a deeply considered account of British architecture in the interwar period.  His widow and long-term C20 member and supporter the the author Rosemary Hill will discuss the challenging process of editing Gavin’s manuscript and bringing what has been described as the landmark history of British architecture between the Great War and the Blitz and a vivid portrait of a changing nation to publication.
