Architectural History of the National Theatre: Part 1 - Google Arts & Culture | Thespie

Visitors to the National Theatre may arrive knowing it was designed by Denys Lasdun, but few people will know that before Lasdun secured the commission in 1963, four other architects all attempted to design Britain's National Theatre. The first part of this exhibit, curated by Dr Daniel Rosenthal, is dedicated to the four men who might have build the National Theatre: William Somerville, Edwin Lutyens, Hubert Worthington and Brian O'Rorke.
