"This book is a comprehensive chronicle of the entirety of Gowan's work, exploring his involvement in some of the most important and influential buildings in post-war Britain." "This book profiles Gowan's impressive career: from early employment with Powell & Moya and Lyons Israel Ellis; through a selection of key projects from his partnership with James Stirling, such as the Leicester Engineering Department Building - recognised immediately as a work of canonical significance; to major buildings and projects undertaken by Gowan throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s, such as the Schreiber House, one of the few masterpieces of domestic architecture to be built in Britain in the second half of the twentieth century, to present day projects, including the New Teaching Hospital: Istituto Clinico Humanitas, in Milan."--BOOK JACKET.
