Peter Moro and Partners Lecture




Peter Moro and Partners Lecture

Thursday 14 October 2021 6.30pm Online

Alistair Fair will talk about the work of Peter Moro and Partners, linked to Alistair’s monograph in the C20 Twentieth Century Architects series to be published in September.

Peter Moro (1911-1998) designed the interior of the Royal Festival Hall, and followed by a number of Britain's finest post-war theatres, including Nottingham Playhouse, and Plymouth Theatre Royal. He also designed some exceptional houses, university buildings, schools, and council housing. Moro believed in a rigorous modern architecture which was both functionally sound and aesthetically rich. Alistair sheds new light on Moro’s important body of work, and enriches our understanding of the experience and diversity of modernism in Britain.

Alistair Fair is Reader in Architectural History at the University of Edinburgh and C20 casework committee member.
