The architect James Gowans deserves to be more widely recognised. A few years ago I made this film about a house built by Gowans that he called ‘Rockville’. This house was demolished in the late 1960’s. Only it’s gateposts survive.
A short biography on James Gowans was titled “Romantic Rationalist”
The song “Not the world’s strongest man” is sung by John Grant as part of the BBC production ‘Scott Walker Revisited’
