Scope and content

Professor Richards’ maintained an interest in nurturing a broad understanding for the art of architecture, especially as it applies to modern architecture and the influences on him, ranging from Japanese and Chinese architecture to the design of commercial advertisements and popular cultural events. This range of interests are well documented within his writings. Series 16 covers unpublished manuscripts and many, but not all, of the articles and books listed in Professor Richards’ curriculum vitae.

The series includes two boxes of files of articles about Professor Richards or in which he is mentioned. These are followed by letters to the editor, book reviews, and manuscripts and publications. The principal unpublished work is ‘The latent energies of Michelangelo’s private library’ (1974).
