9780714828718: Denys Lasdun

Denys Lasdun (1914-2001) was one of Britain's most eminent architects, whose career spans the entire period of Modernism in British architecture. His notable buildings include the Royal College of Physicians in Regent's Park, the University of East Anglia, the European Investment Bank in Luxembourg and the National Theatre on London's South Bank. In this first full-length study of the architect, William Curtis offers a critical assessment of Lasdun's ideas and achievements, tracing the evolution of his architectural language. With detailed analyses and many outstanding illustrations from the architect's own archive, the author presents a challenge to the critics of Modernism and demonstrates the enduring and human qualities of Lasdun's work.

From the Publisher:

A study of the work of Denis Lasdun, this volume examines the ideas and guiding myths behind Lasdun's forms and shows how his architecture fits into both the British and international modern movements, and how it is indebted to classical and earlier traditions. The study is based upon primary documentary sources and 20 years of dialogue with the architect. It is the aim of the text to explain the meaning of such key works as the Bethnal Green housing clusters (1952-4), the Royal College of Physicians (1959), the University of East Anglia (1962) and the Hurva Synagogue project for Jerusalem (1970). Two chapters are devoted to the social history and design process of the whole National Theatre project (1965-76). The book explores Lasdun's idea of architecture as "urban landscape" and deals with the ways in which he has extended the principles of the modern masters into new expressive territories.

About the Author:

William Curtis has won worldwide acclaim for his architectural writing. His books include Le Corbusier: Ideas and Forms and the bestselling Modern Architecture Since 1900 (both published by Phaidon).
