Reviews of BUILDINGS OF BRITAIN
“Roger FitzGerald, a partner in the Architects Design Partnership, paints watercolours of architectural subjects in his spare time, andBloomsburypresents a generous selection of them in this attractive book. FitzGerald says his selection of subjects is ‘personal’ not scholarly, the intention being ‘to encourage the reader to look closely at places he or she knows or comes across’. At first glance he may seem to be touring John Piper territory, but his interests prove sufficiently eclectic for the inclusion of Ralph Erskine’s Byker Wall and, in a section on materials, the concrete terraces of the National Theatre and the tensile fabric roof of Schlumberger alongside the vernacular of timber, brick, flint and thatch.” – Architects’ Journal, 5 October 1995
“In precise and detailed watercolours the diversity of British architecture is celebrated, fromStonehengeto the Thames Barrier. Individual buildings, famous towns and cities, cathedrals and castles are pictured, as are our traditional materials – stone, thatch, timber and brick.” – Hatchards, Autumn and Winter selection 1995 and Christmas preview evening book signing, 1995
