  • Comment on: AJ Writing Prize: Alan Berman on what makes good architectural writing

    John Bold's comment 16 June, 2011 6:03 pm

    Interesting to hear about a monograph on Vincent Harris - was the top storey of the MOD inspired by Wilton House? I am sorry that Alan Berman has not read any good architectural history and analysis recently. To add to Jeremy Till's list, he might consider Downes and Girouard, Saint and Powers, Curtis and Stevenson, Cooper and Guillery, as well as a number of Westminster RIBA prizewinners: O'Callaghan, Rapp, Severs, Gregory and Richards. No jargon; not historiographical; just good, well written and inspiring history about architecture, design, society and us; persuasive and pertinent: pyrrhic victory or straw man?
