Published Writings 9 - as referred to by *

DESIGN 2

my articles with Descriptive and Analytical/Critical content, as published in PROGRESSIVE ARCHITECTURE-P/A while I was served as Correspondent for 21 years, listed on the masthead, from 1975 - 1996: having been selected by Editor Bill Marlin of Architectural Forum, a number of pieces were "in progress" when that venerable magazine was taken over by Architecture Plus in a hostile buy-out (thereby destroying both, in fact). My friend Suzanne Stephens went to P/A, and convinced the Editor, John Morris Dixon to create a board of Contributors.These issues cover 1975 - 1981
