Powers, Alan (2008) The classical theory of Hope Bagenal. In: Salmon, Frank, (ed.) The Persistence of the Classical: Essays on Architecture Presented to David Watkin. Philip Wilson Publishers, London, UK, pp. 40-55. ISBN 978085667661Full text not available from this repository.
Hope Bagenal (1885-1979) wrote extensively on classical architecture, combining direct observation of Greek and Roman sites with speculation about the origin of classical forms, the relationship between architecture, geology, climate and landscape, and the symbolic content of architectural form.
The essay identifies his search for deeper meaning in classicism at a time when it was a dominant mode for new design, and into the beginnings of modernism in Britain. It adds to knowledge of Bagenal who is mainly remembered as an acoustic consultant.
