Writers Dr Paul Larmour and David Evans are academics with specialist knowledge of Ulster Architecture. This book is divided into three sections. In part one thematic essays trace the evolution of Modernism in Ulster. The first by Dr Paul Larmour covers the period 1900-1950 and the second, from 1950 to the present day is by David Evans. A third essay is by Charles Rattray.
Parts two and three consist of case studies of fifty buildings and projects 1950-2005. Larmour and Evans provide commentary and analysis of each, accompanied by photographs and architectural drawings.
The authors believe that the wide range of buildings included will stand the test of time and will be regarded as influential design.
This is a stylish book which is beautifully presented.
