This authoritative biography of Sir Robert Matthew (1906-1975), one of the dominant figures in 20th century British architecture, interweaves his personal story with the turbulent political and social cross-currents of the welfare-state-era. A strong-willed, idealistic leader, Matthew exploited the great narratives of the day public collectivism and private individualism, modernity and tradition to help chart a wider strategy for architecture in Britain and abroad. Although famous as head of the Royal Festival Hall design team and founder of the architectural practice RMJM, Matthew was above all concerned with complex social and ethical issues.
