Author and critic Martin Pawley dies
Pawley, who had a weekly column in the AJ for 11 years, passed away early yesterday morning (9 March), a few weeks before his 70th birthday.
Throughout a wide-ranging career, in which he advised the Chilean government on housing, taught at the AA, and wrote and edited numerous periodicals and papers, Pawley was known for his unsentimental, sometimes cantankerous demeanour.
Late last year Pawley published The Strange Death of Architectural Criticism: Martin Pawley Collected Writings.
Foster + Partners partner David Jenkins said a planned 'celebration' of the book and Martin's birthday at the AA on 18 March would now become a memorial event.
A full obituary will feature in this week’s magazine.
