  • M.H. Baillie Scott TU Delft, Architecture and the Built Environment

Abstract

The English Arts and Crafts movement modelled itself on an idealized view of society in pre-industrial England. Its adherents were inspired by buildings from this period to develop a new, ‘free’ architecture. Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott, a third generation Arts and Crafts architect, persisted in a nondescript, neo-Tudor idiom that was skilfully executed, yet far from innovative. From a typological perspective, however, his work is of great importance. Baillie Scott developed new solutions for a wide range of dwelling types, from small terraced homes to stacked apartments. Unlike many of his colleagues, he thus managed to escape the confines of country house design.
