Alexander 'Greek' Thomson is at last being recognised as an architect of genius, comparable in stature to Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Now in paperback, this is the first book in which a team of distinguished architectural commentators and historians use the latest research in the area to illuminate the full range of Thomson's talents. Thomson emerges not just as a great architect, but as a towering intellect whose theory and practice synthesised the best thought of his time in architectural history, aesthetic philosophy and, not least, theology. His ventures into urban planning are explored, and his approaches to façade design and interiors are examined in detail, while rare colour plates complete a portrait which brings this outstanding architect to life. With an Introduction by the late Sir John Summerson this volume celebrates the work of arguably the greatest exponent of the Greek Revival.
