Colin St John Wilson: Buildings and Projects is the definitive monograph on Sir Colin St John Wilson, one of the most important British architects of the twentieth century. This erudite, comprehensive publication spans projects from throughout his career, from early work, such as the groundbreaking 1956 'This is Tomorrow' collaborative exhibition of architects and artists; to his own house in Cambridge (where he was the University's Head of the School of Architecture 1975-1989); to perhaps his most celebrated building, the British Library in St Pancras and its extension.

The book takes the reader on a journey through modern British architectural history, finishing in the present day with the masterplanning of the Royal Academy. The book also includes several of his late buildings, including the contemporary wing to the Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, which opened in 2006, and houses St John Wilson's extensive collection of modern British art.

Colin St John Wilson: Buildings and Projects beautifully illustrates the thought processes and theories behind the work, with essays, photographs, drawings and diagrams; as well as genealogical and chronological charts, that place his architecture within a historical context. Fascinating texts by respected architects and writers including Professor Roger Stonehouse and Eric Parry fully elucidate St John Wilson's contribution to modern architecture.

Colin St John Wilson: Buildings and Projects is the perfect companion to Black Dog Publishing's re-issue of St John Wilson's seminal The Other Tradition of Modern Architecture: The Uncompleted Project.
