"A Life in Education and Architecture: Mary Beaumont Medd." Catherine Burke. Ashgate. December 2012. --- This book seeks to provide a detailed exploration of the relationships between individual architects, educators, artists and designers that laid the foundation and shaped the approach to designing new school buildings in postwar Britain. It explores the life and work of Mary Medd, one of the most important modernist architects of the 20th century. Kerwin Datu finds that this biography falls short in some places but is historically valuable when we compare Medd’s ideas with the current state of British education.
