Berthold Romanovich Tolek Lubetkin 19011990

Hidden Tecton: members included: Douglas Bailey, Anthony Chitty, Lindsay Drake, Michael Dugdaie, Valentine Harding, Denys Lasdun, Godfrey Samuel, Francis Skinner. oa ne can't be entirely sure of anything where Lubetkin is concerned, but it seems he was born in Georgia, son of a relatively wealthy Jewish engineer and spent most of his life denying this Jewish identity, even claiming to have been the son of a famous Russian admiral. It appears that he was educated in St Petersburg and Moscow and, by 1914, was already well travelled in France, Germany, England, and Scandinavia. Aged fifteen, he enrolled at the Stroganov Art School in Moscow and, after the Revolution, he attended the SVOMAS (free art) studios in St Petersburg and Moscow, and the VUTEMAS (advanced state workshops of art and industrial art) in Moscow. It was now that he is said to have come into contact with Rodchenko, Tatlin, Malevich, Mayakovsky, Vesnin, Popova, and Gabo - a celebrated grouping later to be added to by Klee, Grosz, Picasso, Braque, Léger, Gris, Soutine, Cocteau, Ernst May, Bruno Taut, and others. Our man was clearly fated for stardom.

Mod Gothic? Medieval Architecture in the Modern Ages

Scholars have long recognised the close connections between Gothic revival, restoration and architectural history in the nineteenth century. But how did personal, institutional and political circumstances shape understanding of medieval architecture in the twentieth century? In tribute to the extraordinary scholarship and teaching of Peter Kidson (1925-2019) and Paul Crossley (1945-2019), speakers at this online conference consider the personalities, technologies and geographies that determined how medieval architecture was studied and taught after 1945. ‘Each age builds its own Gothic cathedral’, wrote Paul Crossley: what did the Modern Ages make of the Middle Ages?
