Wells Coates: architect and designer

The British architect and designer Wells Coates (1895-1958) was a key figure in the Modern Movement. The website devoted to his work is in eight sections covering his early life in Japan, life with his wife Marion and daughter Laura, his friendships, and his ideals, which led to the formation of the MARS Group in 1933. Other sections include 'Success', which features Coates's most successful industrial design, the AD 65 radio for E.K.Cole, and the Lawn Road (Isokon) Flats. Hyperlinks in the text provide further information, together with a bibliography and list of exhibitions featuring Coates's work.
