At the core of the industrialisation, were huge social reforms in 19th- C Britain, which translated to changes in urban planning and architecture. Within this, we see how concerns about disease transmission influenced the design of hospitals, prisons and asylums, as well as the impact on urban housing. This leads us to understand why the Victorians used temporary experimental buildings, and how civil engineers challenged the profession. These architectural impacts are then followed across to the US – particularly Chicago – to see how the relationship between form and technology was expressed.
