18th Venice Biennale Architettura, 20 May-26 November 2023

A welcome addition to Yorkshire volumes

The decline and fall of the dreaming spires and their replacement by shuttered shops, sad cafés and mothballed pubs

Modern Buildings in Britain offers an encyclopaedia of potential future losses

A pivotal figure in the move against modernism

A northern light shows the way

Let us now praise famous concrete

Mixed in with the whimsical, the eccentric and the downright weird, there are masterpieces

Earlier generations of Britons built for the next generation –– but we’re stuck in a selfish present

The region combines ancient and modern splendours with an eye turned ever northwards
