London and its metropolitan area are the sources of much of our own American modern architectural and interior design. Whether Arts and Crafts or metallic modernist, London’s designers of the 19th century paved the way for our 20th-century ideals of design. Join Barry Lewis on a journey through one of the world’s greatest cities.
Barry Lewis is an architectural historian who specializes in European and American architecture from the 18th to 20th centuries.
