George 1924-2000 American sculptor
(1907-1985) Swiss-born British architect. He pioneered community architecture in the UK. From the 1960s he developed proposals for end-users to design and build their own housing, using simple construction methods and standardized low-tech building components, such as timber framing and pre-cut cladding boards. Houses built by the Lewisham Self-Build Housing Association, London, 1977–80, are examples of his system in practice.
