Description

Roger FitzGerald has practised as an architect in London since he qualified over thirty years ago. He brings an architect s keen eye for detail and construction, and combines this with a fascination for discovering and expressing through paintings what makes well-known places such as Borough Market, Brick Lane or Parliament Square, so special to the city. He has a passion for exploring unspoilt and hidden parts of London. His painting style combines colour, texture and collage to capture the essence of places. Frequently, he portrays buildings as an architectural stage-set : a permanent, calm and static backdrop to the vibrancy of everyday life. This contrast is exploited, with cool architectural colours offset by vivid warm tones and elements of collage which represent the life and bustle generated by moving people and vehicles. Tickets, menus, maps, books, newspapers and a host of other paraphernalia are incorporated into the images, adding additional meaning and complexity. Buildings of London relies primarily on its images, but these are combined with short and personal comments that make this an intriguing and inspiring guide to the architectural delights of the capital city. Roger Fitzgerald was born in Cambridge, trained in Manchester, and moved to London in 1983 to start his career as an architect. He joined ADP from university and now chairs the practice, which is one of the top twenty firms in the country. Throughout his career as an architect he has enjoyed drawing whether as a design concept for a new building, or to explore, understand, and capture the essence of existing architecture.

Well worth a read. FitzGerald has developed his style since his previous work, evidently now painting in a free-flowing manner which gives rise to a book quite different to the sort of thing you'd ordinarily see on an architectural bookshelf. Looks good on a coffee table but holds up nicely as a reference work too.
