I recently read this Article by Denys Lasdun’s son, James, on his father. Written in 2003 it is an intriguing view of the internal workings of Denys Lasdun. I was struck by many aspects of the article but mostly by the turmoil that Lasdun experienced despite exuded a calm public demeanour.
I think it is a feeling a lot of architects, no matter how ‘great’ they are, probably know all too well.
