Philip Webb Centenary

Philip Webb Centenary

Red House stained glassIn 2015 the SPAB will lead a series of events and activities to mark the centenary of the death of its co-founder, architect Philip Webb.

Philip Speakman Webb (12 January 1831 – 17 April 1915) is often referred to as the Father of Arts & Crafts architecture, but his name is not as familiar as many others connected with the influential movement. This year we are joining forces with other organisations and individuals to increase awareness of his important legacy.

This blog will shine a spotlight on the life, work and philosophy of the unsung hero of British architecture. Each post will focus on one aspect of Webb’s life and work, using objects from a variety of collections to illustrate the theme.
Sincere thanks to all those who contributed to this exhibition, in particular:
Prof Peter Burman
Dr John Aplin
Claudia Marx
Tessa Wild (National Trust)
Anna Mason (William Morris Gallery)
Helen Elletson (William Morris Society/Emery Walker House)
National Portrait Gallery
