“I am not a modernist but … I agree with the modernists in every way except that I think their brand of modernism is not very good.” Raymond Erith looked to achieve what he called the true “economy of means”, using traditional means to create original buildings with progressive ideas behind them.
New colour photographs by Mark Fiennes accompany four essays on Erith and a catalogue and bibliography of his work.
Quinlan Terry is a practising classicist architect and Lucy Archer, Kenneth Powell and George Saumarez Smith are well known architectural historians.
