Blee, Anthony

Anthony Blee (b.1935) was a partner in the practice of the seminal British proponent of modernist/brutalist architecture, Sir Basil Spence. Blee joined the practice during the project to reconstruct Coventry Cathedral in 1956, and continued to run the practice after Spence’s death in 1976. He married Spence’s daughter, Gillian, in 1959, and they were the first couple to be married in the undercroft of the unfinished Coventry Cathedral.
