Charlotte Baden-Powell was trained at the Architectural Association in London and after qualifying as an architect worked with British Rail designing stations for the Midland Region and then University buildings in the office of Sir Denys Lasdun. After starting her own practice, her work was primarily for private clients and consisted mainly of altering, restoring and adding to buildings in and around London and Bath. She wrote and lectured on the detail design of kitchens, bathrooms and fireplaces. She died in 2006.
Reviews for Architect's Pocket Book:
'It is invaluable for the smaller architectural practice. Packed with drawings, tables and symbol guides, this is a must for use at the drawing board, computer or on-site.'
'A good easy to read guide for site use'
Alan Jarvis, Lecturer
'This little gem is essential for any architect, builder, surveyor, engineer, student, in fact anyone connected with the building industry. Information is clearly presented in a nononsense style. The well-illustrated diagrams help the building regs. appear almost logical'
