Arts And Crafts Revival

The balconies are supported on Greek Doric three-quarter columns, which frame the ground-floor windows and give the lower part of the building a sense of solidity. Using clean simple lines with different materials give this style it’s clean look. This green building and living technique is intent on creating as little waste as possible, using renewable and clean energy, and building with materials that are not damaging to living things or the earth’s environment. But there’s also a willingness to see the good in ‘austerity’ building – and I’m impressed that he admires not just the rebarbative constructions of the Brutalists but also neo-Georgian LCC flats, civilized and durable as they are. As one has come to expect from Hatherley, there’s an enthusiasm for post-war concrete buildings created by people who wanted to bring good design to the masses. As for deciding how many people to put on a piece of work when you are bidding for a contract, well, its another argument for constructing contracts as ongoing, rolling contracts.

Scott built on his success with the mixture of dedication to Gothic architecture and sheer hard work that became his hallmark. Gavin Stamp summarizes this burgeoning career, telling briefly the story of such high-profile projects as the Albert Memorial, covering Scott’s fruitful relationships with craftsmen in metal, glass, and stone, and surveying the architect’s developing attitude to different kinds of Gothic. Gavin Stamp’s excellent new book shows us why, and tell us quite a lot about the work and the life of the man who created it. For the last of my clutch of pre-Christmas reviews, I turn to a book about the life and works of one the great Victorian architects, George Gilbert Scott. Unlike most of his brothers, who went to Cambridge and became priests like their father, George Gilbert Scott was a difficult, solitary boy, who got most of what education he had at home.

Alexandria in Egypt Alexander and his army brought greek ideas and beliefs wherever they went. It is widely utilized across an array of industries by architects, engineers, project managers and several other professionals. The government buildings in Whitehall, in which Scott had to contend with a badly run competition, a Prime Minister (Palmerston) who hated Gothic, and a very mixed reception from members of his own profession, are another key project. Scott designed dozens of them, honing his skills in Gothic and beginning his life of whizzing around the country (on mail coaches at this date, later on trains) to make client- and site-visits. Scott had to abandon his Gothic design and re-do it in Classical form, and the book makes a case for treating these designs seriously, and not as the compromise that some observers have seen. Their art is different in the way that is extremly accessible, being a street friendly form, that anyone can see and appreciate, not to mention it is practical and not a high-art concern.

The sharing can take place with in a firm, among a multitude of people working on the same project, or even externally with other firms. So. Be inquisitive. Go around the back, poke about in corners, talk to people in pubs, walk up unlikely alleys…and you’ll find unexpected interest and delight. So it was with interest I ran across a working paper from Harvard Business School entitled “Exploring the Duality of Product and Organizational Architectures: A Test of the Mirroring Hypothesis” (Alan D. MacCormack, John Rusnak, and Carliss Y. Baldwin). Borge Mogense born in Aalborg started his career as a cabinetmaker in 1934 and studied furniture design at the Danish school of arts and crafts in Kopenhagen. “While basic math concepts are in integral part of practicing architecture, the math involving numeric equations doesn’t play much of a role in design. QA testing is very much important, once the web application is built in your website going through tests are very much required. Such code often lacks unit tests and coherent design.

The iron balcony rail with its elegant design made up of long rectangles and ‘wheels’ is another attractive touch. I posted about Nash’s iron Doric columns, and the occasional need to kick a building, here. The columns, if they continued down to basement level would obstruct the area too much, so the architect has placed them on brackets, leaving the area easier to access. † There are other ways of solving the problem of the attached ground-floor column above a basement. When you look more closely, the building has a basement with, as is usual in houses of this period, a void (known as the area) in front of it, so that the basement can have windows. Pedestrians are prevented from falling into the area by the railings, but from the pavement one can look down into it, and it is very narrow. And yet. There’s something compelling about it, something that makes your eye follow the facade up and down, in and out, and something that makes you admire the architect’s use of concrete to create more than just another box. And then there’s the architecture. And yet you can’t get away from Scott, and if you actually look at his work, there’s much to admire.
