Denys Lasdun: Architecture, City, Landscape (Phaidon, 1994, 1999) by William J.R. Curtis is a comprehensive and analytical monograph of the controversial British brutalist. See also A Language and a Theme: The Architecture of Denys Lasdun & Partners (RIBA Publications Ltd, 1976).
Denus Lasdun is a major British architect of the twentieth century. In this first, in-depth study of his work, William Curtis delves into the ideas and guiding myths behind Lasdun’s forms and shows how his architecture fits into both the British and international modern movements, and how it is indebted to classical and earlier traditions.
