Architecture in Uniform: Designing and Building for the Second World War

Publication, July 2011

Architecture in Uniform: Designing and Building for the Second World War documents the extensive contribution of architecture to the Second World War, and considers how it questioned architectural methods and fundamental structures, and lead to the supremacy of modernism.

This publication not only focuses on plans, buildings, and technological inventions but also examines the many types of visual representation used for war purposes, enhanced by a rich array of newly found illustrations such as drawings, photographs, maps, and posters.
