Ern Goldfinger: The Life of an Architect

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, Nov 27, 2003 - Architecture - 216 pages

In writing this important new book, Nigel Warburton researched the extensive archive of Goldfinger's writing, office papers, models and drawings held in the RIBA Collection and also interviewed people who knew and worked with him. An intolerant and fiery man, Goldfinger gained the respect and grudging admiration of his peers and employees, and while his buildings have provoked controversy they are nonetheless powerful, expressive and individual. This book considers the man and his life as the motivation for his works, weaving anecdotes and first-hand materials into an insightful and extensive account that entertains and challenges readers as it informs.
