Architects and the 'Building World' from Chambers to Ruskin

£16.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

In a study that focuses on Ruskin's radical views on building process, Hanson looks beyond architectural styles to the underlying social microcosm of the 'building world' of the 18th and 19th centuries to examine how the authority of the architect took root. He is able to establish new relationships between key figures of the period - including Chambers, Soane, Barry, Pugin, Scott and Street - and to shed light on lesser figures and on agencies as diverse as freemasonry and magazine publishing.
