Architecture, Industry & Wealth
Collected PaperseBook - 1902
While Morris was not trained as an architect, his involvement in the Arts and Crafts Movement made him extremely influential in building design. As Morris became famous for his wall coverings, stained glass, carpets and tapestries, he inspired architects to embrace the stylistic choices he made. In 1861, Morris established "The Firm," which would later become the famous Morris, Marshall, Faulker & Co. The Firm was commissioned to work on famous homes and buildings like the Armoury and Tapestry Room at St. James' Palace in 1866 and the Dining Room of the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1867. This volume includes Morris' thoughts on architecture and the politics that surround it and other art forms.
