For the first time a comprehensive account of the outstanding work of Ryder & Yates has been chronicled in this new book by Tyneside architect Rutter Carroll. Formed by Gordon Ryder and Peter Yates and heavily influenced by Le Corbusier and Berthold Lubetkin, the practice dominated the development of modern architecture in the North East of England from the early 1950s, where their uncompromising modernism put them in stark contrast to their contemporaries.

Structured by building type, the book attempts to reveal the principles of design particular to the practice of Ryder & Yates. It tells how, from its formation in Newcastle in 1953, it quickly established a reputation for innovative and highly individual buildings situated almost exclusively on Tyneside.

Lavishly illustrated by images from the Ryder & Yates private archive, this book is an essential read for architects, students, architectural historians and modernist enthusiasts interested in learning more about one of the 20th century's most intriguing British practices.

This book has been commissioned as part of a series of books on 20th Century Architects by RIBA Publishing, English Heritage and The Twentieth Century Society.

Rutter Carroll is an architect from Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He began to study the development of the modern movement when he was a student of architecture in the 1970s, and his attention was naturally drawn towards the work of Ryder and Yates, the pioneers of the modern movement in the north east.
