The Architect and the Pavilion Hospital: Dialogue and Design Creativity in England, 1850-1914
Organized from an architect-centred, rather than a building-centred perspective, this work looks at the powerful and recognizable by-product of health building in the Victorian and Edwardian eras: the pavilion plan hospital. As a design format it proved enduring, with a longevity and influence that stretched from the late 1850s to the 1930s.
