Synopsis

The history of architecture is a story of continual innovation, and yet at certain points within that story comes an architect whose vision completely defies convention. Mavericks: Architects who Broke the Mould of British Architecture focuses on twelve such figures from the history of British architecture, including Sir John Soane, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Cedric Price and Zaha Hadid. Published by the Royal Academy of Arts in 2016, this book offers a fresh take on these architects' work, establishing new and sometimes surprising historical connections, while posing an intriguing alternative narrative to the history of British Architecture.
