Description

Architecture is the first monograph on the work of Evans and Shalev, one of the most significant architecture offices practicing in the UK over the last 50 years. Evans and Shalev have produced a notable body of work, including award-winning civic projects such as the Truro Crown Court, 1988, and Tate St Ives, 1993.

Founded by Eldred Evans and David Shalev, the practice has been long noted for a commitment to place-making and for the care, skill and intelligence with which each project is realised. The serene and powerful buildings that the practice has designed over the years have a complexity often only revealed through their use. This is not architecture designed for the easy 'money' shot unlike so much contemporary architecture. Architecture includes Evans and Shalev's key early projects which demonstrate their use of raw concrete and a considered articulation of both plan and section, such as in their seminal work: Newport High School, 1969-1972 (since demolished), and their Home for the Younger Physically Handicapped in Alexandra Road, London, 1972-1976, while later projects such as the Quincentenary Library at Jesus College, Cambridge, 1995, with its use of brick and engagement with adjacent buildings, show the more contextual development of their work through the 1980s and '90s.
