A captivating exploration of Britain’s most iconic contemporary buildings, from the modest to monumental.

We may think the iconic buildings of modern Britain are big, flashy structures like the Senedd or the Shard, but what if more unexpected places better represent our modern age: Barratt homes, out of town shopping centres, business parks and warehouse flats. In this talk John Grindrod, author of Iconicon: A Journey Around the Landmark Buildings of Contemporary Britain, will take us on a witty whistle-stop tour of the strange places built in the UK since the 1980s and what they tell us about who we are, and the dreams of the people who planned and designed them.

This talk is part of the Amdani, Fachynlleth! festival taking place in Machynlleth 1-3 April 2022.
