Casson Archive at the V&A

The Victoria & Albert Museum in London holds the archives of Sir Hugh Casson and his wife Margaret Macdonald Casson, which contain a wealth of material relating to their careers as key twentieth century architects and designers. Sir Hugh achieved popular recognition, and a knighthood, for his role as Director of Architecture for the South Bank exhibition at the 1951 Festival of Britain. The V&A's website includes a small amount of background information on the couple and their work, together with a selection of images and information on accessing the archive.
