Description

A transformation occurred in the work of Michael Hopkins and Partners during the 1980s and 1990s that was achieved at its highest level in the five urban buildings explored in this book. Relatively unknown outside Great Britain, Hopkins presents his perspective at that time in his lecture ‘Technology Comes to Town’, here published and balanced by building studies from five contemporary European architects. Essays by Adam Caruso and Helen Thomas frame the British scene in which the fundamental issues of technology, style and context that run through discussions of 20th century architecture are revisited. The presence of these themes in Hopkins’s architecture is revealed through survey drawings and new photographs of the buildings by Hélène Binet.
