(Modern Architectural Research) Group.
Group of architects (including Arup, Coates, and Lubetkin) founded in 1933 to promote International Modernism and Rationalism in the United Kingdom (it was really the UK branch of CIAM). Taking its cue from Le Corbusier's Plan Voisin and other theoretical ideas, it proposed (1942) widespread destruction and rebuilding of London. It was disbanded in 1957.
