Part of a series that places buildings within their historical context, this text considers three "public" buildings which demonstrate how Arts and Crafts architects worked within varying environments. St Andrew's Church, Roker, is a striking creation - a collaboration of work by architect, artists and craftsmen builders; Glasgow School of Art is a synthesis of opposites - austere and delicate, dark and light, derivative yet innovative; and the First Church of Christ Scientist, Berkeley, California, is versatile, colourful and inventive. The authors describe how each building responds to its context, while examining its unique character. Studying the buildings in one volume is designed to enable the reader to decipher their shared influences along with the larger historical and geographical contexts of each.
