Architectural History

Powell & Moya by Kenneth Powell is part of the English Heritage 20th Century Architects Series. Commissioned by English Heritage, RIBA Publishing and the Twentieth Century Society, this series aims to provide a full and engaging examination of some of Britains's most significant post-war architectural practices.

For the first time a comprehensive and engaging account of one of Britain's most significant post-war practices, Powell & Moya, has been chronicled in this new book by eminent architectural author and critic Kenneth Powell. Founded in 1946 by Philip Powell and Hidalgo Jacko Moya, the practice rapidly established a reputation for an approach best described as 'humane modernism'.

Structured by building type, this book reveals the principles of design particular to Powell & Moya, and tells how they were at the forefront of hospital design, succeeded in bringing modernism to the ancient universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and designed one of London's most successful post-war housing schemes, Churchill Gardens. Ten years after the demise of the practice, they have continued to make the news into the 21st century with the high profile campaign to rebuild their iconic Skylon, originally constructed for the 1951 Festival of Britain. 
  1. Churchill Gardens and the early years
  2. 1951 and the Skylon: designing for entertainment
  3. Oxbridge and beyond
  4. A social architecture
  5. Into a new age
