Notes:

"Be honest first; if you are honest you will be beautiful, but do not attempt to be beautiful; dishonest." Sir Owen Williams.
Sir Owen Williams’ influence on architecture of the first half of the twentieth century stemmed from a demonstration of what a functionalist approach to architecture could achieve. Blurring the roles of engineer; architect, during the period between the wars Williams produced a series of innovative reinforced concrete buildings whose aesthetic treatment depended upon an expression of their structures.
