Modernist architecture comes to London in this exhibition catalogue of the 1938 MARS group including work by Le Corbusier, Mendelsohn & Chermayeff, Marcel Breuer and Alvar Aalto.

Printed card wrappers, a little browned, a name - ‘N Durrell’ - in ink to the upper cover. Short closed tear to the backstrip 2cm from the top of the spine. A very good copy, fully illustrated with black and white half tone photographs throughout and a separately printed list of photographs and models loosely inserted. (11x7.5 inches) oblong quarto format. The publication includes work by Le Corbusier, Wells Coates, Frederick Gibberd, Eric Mendelsohn, Serge Chermayeff, Robert Maillert, Alvar Aalto, Maxwell Fry, Berthold Lubetkin, Tecton, and many others.

MARS - the Modern Architectural Research - Group presented their exhibition at the New Burlington Galleries in January 1938 as an assertion of the growing commitment in England to the International style which was sweeping the continent and north America. Due to the horrors of Nazism in Germany, it could be argued that at this single moment in 1938, Britain was probably home to a greater number of continental modernist architects than at any other time in the century.
