First Modern Architecture??

Postby Roger Evans » Mon May 31, 2004 10:30 pm

Wonder if anyone out there can help in this

Years ago when I was doing a thesis on William Burgess I came across a design for a house I think by Edward W Godwin / maybe for Whistler / I think Chelsea London / Circa 1860?

White tile or brick exterior almost devoid of ornament
Interior Japanese Influence

I remember being shocked that a design like this could be produced in the Victorian Age ~ a complete contrast to Will B's work

I would be grateful for any link on this

Many Thanks

Since posting I tried a google no photos but ..
The house was known as The White House / Tile Street probably after 1878
