Building 20 Bedford Way: Photographic Gallery

These rare photographs show the construction of 20 Bedford Way, the Institute of Education building designed by Sir Denys Ladsun. The Brutalist building located in Bloomsbury met with objections at the time but remains one of the most impressive examples of modernist architecture in the UK.
