Marketing Modernisms: The Architecture and Influence of Charles Reilly

Synopsis

Architect, teacher, journalist, town planner and cultural entrepreneur, Sir Charles Reilly (1874�61948) was a leading figure of the early twentieth-century British architectural scene. Marketing Modernisms is the first book to take an in-depth look at Reilly�2s career, tracing his evolving architectural ethos via a series of case studies of his built work. Among other issues, the author considers Reilly�2s involvement in cultural enterprises such as the establishment of the Liverpool Repertory Theatre, his journalism, transatlantic links and town-planning theories. Reilly has been largely overlooked by writers of Modernist histories, but this book restores him to deserved prominence.
