The architectural profession is largely a Victorian creation. In the 18th century it was common for architects to act as developers and geodesists too, but by the 1820s such roles were being devolved, leaving architects free to experiment with a profusion of styles.

The most important trends in early 20th century architecture simply passed Britain by.However, after the Second World War the situation began to change. Le Corbusier wrote of a house as a ‘machine for living in’, with five points: a flat roof, free plan, free façade, strip windows and pilots or columns to open up the ground floor.

Jonathan Glancey,

the Guardian's architecture critic:

“The saddest thing is that new British housing is pretty much a complete disgrace. We like to invest in supermarkets, shopping malls, distribution centres, spiky office towers and show-off museums, and yet appear to care not a jot for how we house those with little power or money. This is the next challenge for British architecture. But who, in New Britain plc, will foot the bill?”
