Edwin Maxwell Fry


One of the prominent figures which pushed forward the British Modern Movement would be Maxwell Fry. He was a close companion of Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, whom he collaborated and worked with in Chandigarh, India. Most of his was done in partnership with his spouse, Jane Drew, who was also an English Modernist architect. Maxwell Fry, who was presented the RIBA’s Royal Gold Medal in 1964, was established for both his one-off residential projects and the affordable yet quality housing schemes like the Kensal House in West London. The schemes were designed for private developers and public authorities. Some of his projects that have been listed by English Heritage include Margate and Ramsgate railway stations, Levy House, House at Chipperfield Common in Hertfordshire and Miramonte in Kingston.
