Sir Denys Lasdun told a select audience of architects and historians last week that there was much to learn from the now disbanded Congres Internationaux d'Architecture Moderne (ciam) as he and other members of the movement discussed its legacy forty years on. The event, organised by the Twentieth Century Society, brought together Lasdun and Trevor Dannatt, two of ciam's few surviving members, and scholar Marina Lathouri. ciam ran from 1928 to 1968 and was pivotal in the modern movement and heavily influenced by Le Corbusier.
