Introduction

Between 1925 and 1933, Wells Coates, Max Fry and their co-conspirators had

succeeded in creating an identifiable group of modernists within British architectural

their participation in, and co-organization of, events such as the Dorland Hall exhibition,

it was reinforced by the movement’s institutionalization in the MARS Group.
