Letters for Monica Pidgeon

Letters for Monica Pidgeon


Su Rogers, Barbara Goldstein, Dargan Bullivant, Kenneth Frampton, and Peter Murray join the AA Radio to share stories of their professional and personal relationships with the late Monica Pidgeon, editor of Architectural Design magazine from 1946-1975, who passed away in September 2009 at the age of 95. Asked by the Radio to each bring 5 letters of the alphabet, each standing for a word and story about Monica, the anecdotes and memories journey from Bloomsbury to Buckminster Fuller to Berlin, Lunches at L'Escargot, St. Anne's Close, Walter Segal, Jacobsen stools, Saturday afternoon Talks in the garden, Team X and CIAM, Pidgeon Audio Visual, and Monica's Independence, Dedication, Passion, and Loyalty.

This conversation was recorded on Saturday, November 21, 2009 at the AA, 36 Bedford Square, London. Visit the Pidgeon Digital archive at
