The attractions of life in a city with real metropolitan qualities Brough Rick Mather to London from America at a time when urban fabric everywhere was dissolving in a sea of business parks and freeways. His architecture is a celebration of those older qualities, a rejection of the building as an isolated object, but rooted in the calm purity of Modernism. 

Architecture critic Hugh Pearman traces the development of Mather’s career, putting it in the context of a period of unprecedentedly rapid architectura; change.
