Reginald Blomfield (1856–1942) was a colourful and pugnacious character whose success and eminent career as an architect and writer on architecture concealed the fact that he was a second-rater. His most exciting and progressive design work was produced when he was in his 20s and the rest of his career shows an aesthetic decline into feeble conservatism and a growing reputation for angry and spluttering rants against Modernism.
