Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was published to accompany an exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery in 1996/7 of the work of Charles Reilly and the Liverpool School of Architecture during the years 1904 to 1933. The book contains three substantial essays on different aspects of the School followed by a catalogue of the exhibits, many of which are shown as black and white illustrations. The first of the essays, by Alan Powers currently Chairman of the 20th Century Society, addresses the influence of the Liverpool School on architectural education in Britain. His general conclusions are that Charles Reilly, the most charismatic of the early heads of the school, did more to establish architecture as a branch of formal university education in this country than anyone else of the period but that his teaching methods and strict adherence to classical design principles did much to cause a 30 year hiatus in the progress of architectural design in the UK compared to say, Europe. The second essay, by Joseph Sharples of the National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside, examines the widespread and perhaps disproportionate influence of the School and the many students who went on to hold important positions in civic design in cities in Britain and in South Africa and India. Sharples traces the classical design methods of the Liverpool School in many important buildings, not the least of which is the Northern Ireland Parliament, Stormont. The third, and perhaps most entertaining essay, by architect Michael Shippobottom, looks at the relationship between C. H. Reilly and the self made industrial tycoon, William Hesketh Lever, the 1st Lord Leverhulme.Read more ›
