Anti-Ugly: Excursions in English Architecture and Design
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Since 2004 Gavin Stamp, one of Britain’s most eminent and readable architectural historians, has written a monthly column for Apollo, the esteemed architecture and fine art magazine. The subject is simply whatever in design or architecture happens to take his fancy. It might be the splendid reopening of the magnificent Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras Station, or the dilapidation of a little-known church in Eastbourne, the much-lamented demise of the original Routemaster bus, or the colossal majesty of the airship sheds that housed the R.101.
