C20, 2023 Issue 1
C20 is the magazine of the Twentieth Century Society, the national charity that campaigns to protect British twentieth century architecture, design and public art from 1914 onwards. It combines in-depth articles about 20th century buildings and designs, and delves into the ongoing casework the Society does to ensure their protection. It also includes much-loved features such as ‘Me and My House’, exploring notable 20th century homes and their owners’ stories. In addition, it includes book and exhibition reviews, relevant obituaries, excellent architecture photography and information on the Society’s events programme.
The magazine has been recently redesigned and is now a beautiful 80 page full-colour publication with a high standard of printing and reproduction. With a print run of around 3000, over 2000 are delivered to the members. The magazine is also sold through selected arts bookshops and other retail outlets. Members of the Society are a cultured and professional audience that includes architects, surveyors, designers, engineers, builders and conservation officers, as well as dedicated enthusiasts and owners of 20th century houses.
