Description

The first ever comprehensive and engaging account of one of Britains most significant post-war practices, Powell & Moya.

Founded in 1946 by Philip Powell and Hidalgo 'Jacko' Moya, the practice rapidly established a reputation for an approach best described as 'humane modernism'. This book reveals the principles of design particular to Powell & Moya, and tells how they were at the forefront of hospital design, succeeded in bringing modernism to the ancient universities of Oxford and Cambridge, designed one of London's most successful post-war housing schemes, Churchill Gardens and enlivened the 1950s London skyline with the iconic Skylon.

Lavishly illustrated with images from the Powell & Moya archive and stunning new photography, this book is an essential read for architects, students, historians and modernist enthusiasts interested in learning more about one of the twentieth centuries most successful British practices dedicated to modern thinking and serving the people.

Written by eminent architectural author and critic Kenneth Powell, this book has been commissioned as part of a series of books on 20th Century Architects by RIBA Publishing, English Heritage and The Twentieth Century Society.
