NICHOLAS HAWKSMOOR: LONDON CHURCHES -- HELENE BINET. Mohsen Mostafavi. Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich, 2015. 180 pp. with 121 ills. (41 col.). 31 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783037783498 In English.
Publisher's description: Portrait of the iconic London churches built by the British Baroque architect Nicholas Hawksmoor (approx. 1661-1736), who is recognized as one of the major contributors to the traditions of British and European architectural culture. Nevertheless, there is insufficient visual documentation and analysis of his work. Nicholas Hawksmoor: London Churches reconsiders his architecture in relation to urbanism. The publication focuses on a series of important London churches the architect designed during the early part of the eighteenth century. The key distinguishing features of these churches are their spires, each designed with different qualities and motifs. While Hawksmoor was inspired by the ancient history of architecture, his work was considered radical and contemporary in its day. Photographer Helene Binet was specially commissioned to document the various aspects of the seven remaining London churches. Her immaculate black and white photographs demonstrate the beauty of Hawksmoor's architecture with special attention to the variety of scales, sites, interiors, textures, and materials.
