Percival Goodman (1904-89)
Architect, Planner, Teacher, Designer
Percival Goodman's built and unbuilt projects were pioneered using social ideals in design. His religious buildings were the first to combine modern architecture with contemporary abstract art. A utopian, Goodman cowrote a book with his brother, Paul Goodman, entitled Communitas: Means of Livlihood and Ways of Life, which is still a planning textbook in use after fifty years. Goodman was also a teacher who inspired innovative architects.
