A history of Jim Richards’ career as editor of The Architectural Review, this book traces Richards’ ideas about anonymity and concepts of public participation in modern architecture. It explores how these ideas responded to the changing contexts of the mid-twentieth century. Richards was a member of the MARS group, he appeared extensively on BBC radio, was architectural correspondent for The Times newspaper and a member of the Architecture Committee for the Festival of Britain. He was also the author of An Introduction to Modern Architecture, which was published in several editions in the UK and America by Penguin publishers. This book explores his career and what it reveals about the history of modern architecture in Britain.
