Coventry Cathedral: Art and Architecture in Post-War Britain

Synopsis

Coventry Cathedral is the most important public building in Britain of the postwar era. Louise Campbell examines its poignant ruins, its elegant display of technology, and its spectacular integration of works of art. Using original documents and drawings, she provides a case study of a building in which a significant role was allocated to works of art, and in doing so illuminates the creative process of both artist and architect. This interesting and original reevaluation fills a gap in literature on British architecture of the period.
