“The World in One School” explores the global influence of Britains oldest university school of architecture in both word and image. The home of the “Liverpool Manner” style–developed under the leadership of Sir Charles Reilly and honed by architects like Herbert Rowse and Charles Dod–the Liverpool School of Architecture hosted students from all corners of the world and sent its graduates to placements in international practice. Tracing the Schools history–from its origins through the influence of America in the interwar years to a strong Modernist presence influenced by Edwin Maxwell Frys and George Checkleys inspirations, this remarkable story of a School with five Royal Gold Medalists for architecture is a fascinating study of the transatlantic trends that shape education and practice in architecture and design.
