About the Author
Herman Muthesius (1861–1927) was the cultural attaché at the German Embassy in London at a time of profound change in the arts and crafts and particularly in domestic architecture in Britain. An architect himself, and a friend of Mackintosh and Lethaby, Muthesius was fascinated by the English love of home and countryside, their dislike of ostentation and their enthusiasm for cleanliness – all of which showed itself in the architecture of the day, and which he recorded and discussed in astonishing and still unmatched detail in Das Englische Haus, first published in 1904.
Dennis Sharp was an architect, writer, critic and publisher. He served as Vice President of the Architectural Association where he trained, and was Senior Lecturer and founding editor of the AA Quarterly. He was Executive Editor of World Architecture and International Architecture. Professor Sharp received international awards for his writings and criticism as well as awards for his buildings. His books include monographs on Calatrava, Kurokawa and Nicoletti. He died in 2010.
