Item description for The Architecture of James Gowan: Reinvention and Modernity by Ellis Woodman...

The Architecture of James Gowan: Modernity and Reinvention chronicles the course of James Gowan's life and work, with his involvement in some of the most important and influential buildings in post-war Britain. The Architecture of James Gowan is based on an extended interview conducted with the architectural critic Ellis Woodman. In addition to the photographs, drawings and sketches of Gowan's architectural projects the book also features countless of his freehand drawings and sketchbook notations, which display his critical eye, humour and wit. The book also includes a number of Gowan's own writings, as well as shorter texts by some of his many high-profile students, such as Tony Fretton, Alex de Rijke, Richard Rogers and Peter Cook.

The book covers the entirety of Gowan's work, from his early employment with Powell and Moya and Lyons Israel Ellis through a selection of key projects from his partnership with James Stirling, such as the Leicester Engineering Faculty, 1963. Since then, Gowan has realised 40 years of work under his own name, including the Schreiber House, 1964, one of the most significant houses to be built in Britain in the past century. Following his designs for social housing in the 1960s and 70s the book profiles Gowan's work through to the present day, where at 83 he is completing the Humanitas Hospital in Milan.
