In 2001 a Radio Times poll featured Denys Lasdun's building in the top five of both the most hated and the most loved British buildings. To mark the centenary of Lasdun's birth this afternoon celebrates his work and the National Theatre building past, present and future.

With Barnabas Calder, University of Liverpool, a historian of architecture specialising in British architecture since 1945, Patrick Dillon of Haworth Tompkins, the project architect of NT Future (the National's redevelopment project which will transform facilities) and Catherine Croft, Director of the Twentieth Century Society.
