Formatted abstract
This thesis is a study of the history and architecture of the Teneriffe Woolstores. Its purpose is to provide an historical understanding of the development of the architecture, both individually and collectively of these buildings. Investigation is centred around the compilation of relevant historical information with particular attention to the issues of functionalism and local influences. The architecture was found to have evolved from a southern model, adapted to suit functional requirements together with local conditions and techniques. In the main, it is based on a wide range of published sources together with the memories of people associated with the architecture of the buildings and the wool industry. It includes sections on the history of Teneriffe, the wool industry, the development of architectural form and aesthetics, structural considerations and materials. In addition, major buildings are catalogued outlining key information together with an annotated list of sources consulted.
