9781904772781: How to Be a Happy Architect: Bauman Lyons Architects

"How to be a Happy Architect" explores the work of Leeds-based Bauman Lyons Architects in the context of ways of 'being' within the profession. This subject is broken down into three chapters, written by one of the practice's directors, and CABE Commissioner, Irena Bauman. These explore subjects such as the ways of working as a team and in partnership with clients; the power struggle between art and architecture; and the significance of awards and prizes in contemporary architecture. The writing within each chapter constitutes a chain of thought that is sparked off by a 'provocation' from sources as diverse as Ayn Rand, Socrates and press coverage of contemporary buildings like the Scottish Parliament. Further, the book illustrates projects that are outlined in the chapters, including Barnsley Media Centre, Bradford Bus Shelters and Bridlington Promenade, and give an overview of the breadth and variety of the work that Bauman Lyons undertakes, including cultural, healthcare and residential buildings. "How to be a Happy Architect" provides both a profile of one of Britain's most vibrant practices, and a challenge to the reader to explore outside his or her usual approach to, and philosophy of, architecture.
