One of the most successful architects of Brutalism in architecture, one of the most influential architects in the 20th century architecture of the United Kingdom with its own postmodernist understanding. In this study; James Stirling and his works are given based on the literature. The humanist, the reformist, and the social Utopian have shown an attitude. Stirling believed and strived to build a humanistic architecture, using mainly the elements and references that the people would understand and accept. When we look at the whole of architectural life, we can say that Stirling is not worried about creating a strong theory, and that he has transferred the orientations of world architecture to architecture practice with great intuition and courage.
