We’re sharing a post on Arthur Mackmurdo that ran this past April on J. Taylor Design Blog:

“Mackmurdo was an English architect and social reformer. He was an important figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement. He trained as an architect first with T. Chatfield Clarke and then with the Gothic Revivalist James Brooks. He was greatly influenced by John Ruskin, particularly on social and economic issues.”
