Full Description

8vo. x+(2)+147+(1)pp. Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper. A good copy.

A number of lectures, addresses, letters and poems by the son of Alfred Waterhouse, mostly from his time as President of the RIBA (as his father had been). Paul was not as prolific an architect as his father , although he had inherited his father’s practice, but his strength, as the compiler of these writings testifies, was his gift for oratory and his dedication to the activities of the RIBA. These papers tackle, among other subjects, the place of architecture amongst the modern arts, the relationship between architecture and music, and the material of architecture.
