British architecture critic Martin Pawley died March 9 at the age of 69. As a young man, Pawley studied architecture at the Oxford School of Architecture, Paris' École des Beaux Arts, and London's Architectural Association. He began his prolific career as a journalist in the 1970s and held positions at Architectural Design, Building Design, World Architecture, and The Architect's Journal; he also served for seven years as the architecture critic for The Guardian. His writings included several books, among them Terminal Architecture (1998) and Theory and Design in the Second Machine Age (1990). These works were joined late last year by an anthology of his work—edited by David Jenkins and prefaced by Norman Foster—entitled The Strange Death of Architectural Criticism: Martin Pawley Collected Writings (Black Dog Publishing).
