Description: The four emerging architectural practices documented in this book are representative of the current vital building activity in London. They share the aims for an architecture that is contextual, solid, and rich in the use of materials. At the same time, their work acknowledges the precedents set by Hormen Foster, Richard Rogers, and James Stirling as well as the canonical work of early modern architecture.

David Chipperfield's shop interiors show a reworking of Corbusian themes with Miesian materials that results in a more lyrical evocation of everyday processes. In his School of Education for the University of East Anglia, Rick Mather has in turn reconfigured Corbusian forms with the typological research of Alvar Aalto.

Eric Parry's buildings and projects merge literary narrative with a sense of the discourse of architectural history as demonstrated in several artist studio projects. Alan Stanton and Paul Williams also reveal their considerable experience in matching programmatic narrative to architectural forms in their designs for the Rodin, Gothic, and Romanesque exhibitions at the Hayward Gallery. Distributed for the 9H Gallery.
