The period around 1900 was a defining point in the history of architecture and it offers a fascinating insight into the whole development of the modern architectural movement. The intellectual debate was intense with a desire to produce innovative architecture which honoured the past and local traditions whilst using a combination of traditional and new materials. This international collection of papers examines the buildings and architects of this period and presents many fine examples of both domestic and public architecture, reflecting the diversity of ideas and influences of the time. The dialogue between tradition and modernity finds expression in the creative design and craftsmanship of the Arts and Crafts Movement and also reveals a desire to experiment with newer materials such as steel and reinforced concrete which then became more widely used after the First World War Contents: An introductory perspective Alan Powers STYLE AND TECHNIQUE Innovation and conservatism: steel and reinforced concrete in British architecture 1860–1905 Michael Stratton Precedent versus principle: the search for regional expression in New Zealand domestic architecture, 1890–1916 Ian Lochhead The search for order: Scottish architecture 1880–1914 Miles Glendinning The Glasgow School of Art: the leading edge of technology George M.
