For the first time a comprehensive and engaging account of one of Britain’s most significant post-war practices, Powell & Moya, has been chronicled in this new book by eminent architectural author and critic Kenneth Powell. Founded in 1946 by Philip Powell and Hidalgo “Jacko” Moya, the practice rapidly established a reputation for an approach best described as ‘humane modernism’. Structured by building type, 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, and designed one of London’s most successful post-war housing schemes, Churchill Gardens.
