Description: The Mound Stand, Lord's Cricket Ground London 1987 Architects: Michael Hopkins and Partners Text: David Jenkins Photographs: Dave Bower This spectacular pavilion is, in effect, a modern reinterpretation of the traditional village green marquee. Since its completion in 1987 it has become an extraordinarily well-respected building, not only among architects and critics, but also the general public. It is one of the very few modern buildings to receive the public approval of Prince Charles. David Jenkins argues that the secret of the pavilion's appeal lies in the success with which it has married together two technologies, the old and the new. At the pavilion's lowest, earth-bound level there is a base consisting of massive, load-bearing brick arches. These incorporate fragments of an older brick structure, thereby rooting the new building not only to the ground, but also to the context of its past. Above that is an intermediate level of lighter steel framing, filled in with translucent glass blocks. Floating above all of these elements is an airy and precisely calculated fabric roof which recalls, but far exceeds in excitement and virtuosity, the metal canopies above the older surrounding pavilions. This monograph gives an illustrated narrative account of how this outstanding work of architecture came about, analyses its performance, and documents the building by means of a full set of scaled technical drawings, thirty pages of large-format photographs (many in full colour), and a chronology and bibliography. It is, and will remain, the definitive archival record of Michael Hopkins's Mound Stand. Architecture in Detail Series Director: Maritz Vandenberg Architecture in Detail is a constantly growing archive of architectural masterworks, mostly but not exclusively from the twentieth century. Each selected building is described and evaluated by an expert author, and documented by means of extralarge photographs and a comprehensive set of accurate scaled drawings. There is also, in each case, a definitive bibliography and chronology of the building in question. Each of these monographs is therefore a complete and accurate archival record, intended to be the standard reference on that building for students and scholars as well as practising architects. Initial volumes are listed here. Many more are in preparation, and will be published at a rate of about 8 per annum. Information on forthcoming titles is obtainable from the publisher. 01 The Mound Stand, Lord's Cricket Ground London 1987 Architects: Michael Hopkins and Partners Text: David Jenkins Photographs: Dave Bower ISBN 0 442 30820 5 02 The Joseph Shops London 1983-1989 Architect: Eva Jiricna Text: Jose Manser Photographs: Richard Bryant and Alastair Hunter ISBN 0 442 30827 2 03 Red House Bexleyheath 1859 Architect: Philip Webb Text: Edward Hollamby Photographs: Charlotte Wood Foreword by Sir Hugh Casson ISBN 0 442 30821 3 04 The Renault Centre Swindon 1982 Architect: Norman Foster Text: Chris Abel Photographs: Dennis Gilbert ISBN 0 442 30826 4 05 The Financial Times Print Works London 1988 Architects: Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners Text: David Jenkins Photographs: Jo Reid and John Peck ISBN 0 442 30819 1
