Berthold Lubetkin was born in Tiflis, Georgia, Russia in 1901. He studied in Russia, Berlin, and Warsaw before settling in Paris where he attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts. In Paris he observed the early experiments of Le Corbusier and mastered the use of reinforced concrete. He established a practice with Jean Ginsberg for a short time before moving to England in 1930. In 1932 he helped establish the Tecton Group and was actively involved with both MARS (Modern Architectural Research Group) and CIAM (International Congress for Modern Architecture).
His major commissions show an adherence to the vocabulary of the International School that was occasionally tempered by more abstract concepts. His designs were often dictated by functional needs.
