The Modern House
In the early part of his career, Yorke was a notable writer for The Architect’s Journal and author of several books including The Modern House (1934), which provided a detailed knowledge of modern European architecture, including 14 pages of British examples. He later went on to write The Modern House in England (1937). It was only after World War II that Yorke had commercial success as an architect. His practice with Rosenberg and Mardall (YRM) was then able to transform Britain’s urban landscape with new housing, schools and universities. One of his most renowned buildings is St Thomas’ Hospital in London.
