The Twentieth Century Society exists to safeguard the heritage of architecture and design in Britain from 1914
onwards. One of the Society's prime objectives is education, with education comes appreciation. With
conservation, another prime objective, comes the continued opportunity for extending our knowledge about those
buildings or artifacts, whether important or humble, rare or commonplace as the red telephone kiosk, that
characterise the Twentieth Century in Britain.
