Concrete Reality: Building the National Theatre

The National Theatre is a London landmark. Much-criticised when it opened, Denys Lasdun's NT is now recognised one of the great British buildings of the mid-twentieth century.

Writer and architect Patrick Dillon, who led the recent regeneration for Haworth Tompkins architects, describes the National Theatre’s painful genesis and long design-process, illuminates the architecture, and explains his own passion for the building.

Designed by artist Jake Tilson and profusely illustrated, Concrete Reality is the story of how a mid-century masterpiece was made.
