Modern Movement Conservation

James Dunnett has from the beginning been fascinated with the ideas and objectives of the Modern Movement as the most creative architectural development of the twentieth century, whilst being immersed in parallel in the beauty of  vernacular architecture from all times. On graduating he therefore went first to work for Ernö Goldfinger, seen as the last exponent of the Modern Movement, and that contact has influenced his whole career and thought. In consequence he has been involved in the conservation of Modern Movement buildings, particularly those of Goldfinger, as well as consideration of how Modern Movement principles might best be applied today.
