Overview

Christopher Nicholson (1904-48) was a leading architect and designer of the early Modern Movement in Britain. Despite an architectural career interrupted by the Second World War and later cut short by his tragic death in a gliding accident, Nicholson left a considerable legacy of built and unbuilt projects. His most famous works of the thirties were in sympathy with the advanced modern style of his brother, the abstract artist Ben Nicholson. His young protégé, Hugh Casson, assisted on numerous schemes and produced many of the beautiful drawings illustrated in this book. In 1990, the RIBA Drawings Collection acquired Nicholson's complete collection of drawings, record books and photographs. A selection of this work has been reproduced here, from Nicholson's early student projects, through to his major buildings such as Augustus John's studio and the London Gliding Club, concluding with his post-war design work for aeroplane livery and radio and television sets. Neil Bingham gives an account of Nicholson's career, describing the architect's important role in the development of Modernism in Britain.
