Description

This is the first biography of Ern/ Goldfinger (1902-1987), the leading modernist architect in Britain in the twentieth century. It is the fascinating story of a man and his struggle to build in a modern style in Britain in the face of contemporary opposition. Today, opposition to his buildings, particularly Trellick Tower, is turning to admiration. 2 Willow Road, his own house, was recently acquired by the National Trust - its first modern property. A century after his birth his buildings are achieving heritage status. This book tells the story of Goldfinger's life in architecture which raises profound questions about the role of architecture in British society and the political and moral values that buildings can embody. In writing this important new book, Nigel Warburton researched the extensive archive of Goldfinger's writing, office papers, models and drawings held in the RIBA Collection and also interviewed people who knew and worked with him.
