In the year of the Great Awakening, the British king Arthur, his court and his people, all gathered at Camelot Castle to build the first modern home for their royal family.
But there were also many challenges along the way, including the British government’s insistence on a royal “nobility” and the fact that the house was designed by an architect with an interest in the Royal Family.
Here’s a look back at some of the most iconic and influential buildings from the 20th century and how they influenced modern architecture.
(Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post) A.M. Pei, the first Chinese American to become a major American architect, was commissioned by the British to design the palace.
He built the new palace in 1864, but when King George V died in 1869, Pei’s widow decided to move the building to the United States to give her family more financial stability.
Pein built his own house for his family in nearby St. Louis, and he was appointed as the first president of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
(The Washington, D.C., architect died in 1924.)
He also designed the new National Museum of the United Kingdom, and designed the British Library at Buckingham Palace.
In 1926, Pein was awarded the first prize in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences’ prestigious “design of the year” award.
He died in 1928.

In 1934, the United Nations created a division to promote peace and development.
In 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt commissioned the famed artist Edward Hopper to design a memorial to the Allied victory over the Nazis.
The memorial was unveiled in 1938.
The Roosevelt administration used the project as a springboard to develop new U, S.S., for the United states.
In 1942, he signed a bill authorizing the building of the World’s Fair, the largest and most important of its kind in the world.
In the same year, President John F. Kennedy also signed a landmark legislation establishing a federal department for the promotion of peace.
He also appointed William Jennings Bryan to be the secretary of commerce.
In 1953, the Kennedy administration created the Office of National Emergency Management to coordinate and coordinate emergency planning and response.

President Lyndon B. Johnson signed Executive Order 13521 to create the Department of Defense, which would be responsible for national security.
President John Kennedy also appointed the future president Gerald Ford as director of the Defense Department.
In 1968, President Richard Nixon announced his resignation.
President Jimmy Carter was elected in 1976.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, which honors those who served, opened in Washington, but many of its visitors have been angered by its lack of respect for American soldiers, who fought and died for our freedom.
The war also led to the death of more than 20 million Vietnamese.
Many buildings at the memorial, including that of the first American woman to be buried there, were designed by Americans.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the country went through a series of economic and political turmoil.
Many Soviet buildings were damaged during the war.
Many of the city’s landmarks, including monuments to former leaders and other important people, were destroyed by fire.

In 1995, the Council was formally renamed the Council of Europe.

Many malls were converted into luxury shopping centers.
Many retailers also closed their doors.
(Linda Davidson/The New York Times) Many American companies were hit hard by the recession.
A decade later, American companies lost more than half their business, a huge blow to consumers and to the American economy.
American firms and their products were being pushed to foreign markets, often with little regard for their quality or quality control.
In 1999, Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The act was meant to ensure equal pay for workers.
