About this talk

Running time: 44 minutes

Brian Henderson spent the greater part of his career as a partner with YRM. The firm, founded by F.R.S. Yorke, Eugene Rosenberg and Cyril Mardall, was responsible for many institutional buildings of the post war period: schools and universities, power stations and airports.

Henderson talks about his early experience working for Basil Spence on the Festival of Britain; his major buildings for YRM, including the Sizewell B nuclear power station in Suffolk; and the more unusual projects he was involved with, such as the Michelin Building for Paul Hamlyn and Terence Conrad, and YRM's own offices in Britten Street.

This talk was recorded at Brian Henderson's home in Wiltshire.
