A short tribute to the important post war British architect, Robert Maguire who was a pioneering designer of the first modern churches in the UK and also made internationally-important contributions in the fields of working with historic settings, university buildings and student housing. His partnership with Keith Murray produced a significant body of work, influenced by developments in European and International modernism as well as tradition and the vernacular. Christopher Platt was a member of the practice Maguire & Murray (later Maguire & Co) for 6 years. This piece contributes to a series in AT called 'Learning from' which identifies a field (book, building, person) of inspiration.
