Joan deRis Allen

Joan deRis Allen (1931-2015) graduated from Columbia University School of Architecture in 1956 and practiced as an independent architect in the United States until 1968. At that time, together with her husband Paul Marshall Allen and two young children, she emigrated to England. In 1970, she founded Camphill Architects at Botton Village, Yorkshire, with Gabor Talló. Over the years her architectural work took her to Ireland, Scotland, and Norway. In 1970, she published Living Buildings, Halls and Chapels of the Camphill Movement for the fiftieth anniversary of the Camphill Movement. She was also coauthor with Paul Marshall Allen of The Time Is at Hand! (1996); Francis of Assisi's Canticle of the Creatures (1996); and Fingal’s Cave: the Poems of Ossian and Celtic Christianity (1999).
