BOWELLISM is a modern style of architecture heavily associated with
The premise is that the services for the building, such as ducts, sewage pipes and lifts , are located on the exterior to maximise space in the interior. The style originated with Michael Webb\'s 1957 student project for a Furniture Manufacturers Association building in High Wycombe . Webb coined the term in response to a comment on his design by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner in a 1961 lecture, in which he recalled hearing the words: "within the schools there are some disturbing trends; I saw the other day a design for a building that looked like a series of stomachs sitting on a plate. Or bowels , connected by bits of bristle". Thus this inside-out style was termed 'Bowellism' because of how it recalled the way the human body works.
