Robert Adam and Scotland: Portrait of an Architect

 
9780114942052: Robert Adam and Scotland: Portrait of an Architect

Drawing on many original sources, and on the results of recent research, this book gives an all-round picture of Robert Adam's career as a major architect. For many people, he has become a style, mainly in interior design. Above all, the book focuses on his ambiguous relationship with his native Scotland, the "narrow-place" on which as a young man he turned his back, but which continued to employ and inspire him and was to present him with an unexpected second career in the last decade of his life. His response to this challenge is inspiring.
