About this title


Essays on architecture, beautifully illustrated with the author's own photographs and drawings.

John Melvin, one of the UK's most experienced architects and town planners, reflects on the nature of tradition and the role of memory in the renewal of our cities. With a profound understanding of the history of architecture and an acute ear for architecture's emotional resonances, he focuses many of his illustrated essays on Oxford but their lessons could be equally applied to any town proud of its past.

About the Author:

John Melvin is the principal of John Melvin Architects and Town Planners, which has an established reputation for both social housing and work to historic buildings. He has won many architectural awards, and his work has been widely exhibited by the RIBA and the British Council.
