Richard Twentyman, the brother of the sculptor Anthony Twentyman, was a successful West Midlands architect based in Wolverhampton who is known particularly for the thirteen churches and chapels he designed between 1937 and 1973. In the talk, we select a sample of his churches to illustrate his distinctive architectural evolution from an early monumental phase, to more modernistic approaches and later innovative design. We suggest the British and European influences on his work and locate his architecture in the changing social, economic, and religious contexts of this period.
Hosted by the Wolverhampton and District Society of Architects (WDSA) , join us for an evening with co writers Chris Kennedy and Aidan Ridyard as we explore the influence behind their new book 'The Church Architecture of Richard Twentyman'.
