Synopsis: The practice of Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners has come to international prominence and renown, having built upon its reputation for structural, industrial and technical experimentation and finesse in the 1980s and 1990s. This book examines their recent work. At the dawn of the new millennium, the practice has completed some of its most exciting and diverse work: the Eden Project in Cornwall, Ludwig Erhard Haus in Berlin, the Orange Call Centre in Darlington, the National Space Science Centre in Leicester and the redevelopment of Paddington Station.
Hugh Pearman describes the structure of the building, how they are used and experienced and how they respond to their environment. An introductory essay explores the development of the practice from the early 1990s to its present finely balanced and refined state. Introductions to all seventeen projects are written by Nicholas Grimshaw and a lecture by the architect also gives an insight into his thinking and methodology; an interview with Grimshaw provides a further window into the practice.
From the Publisher: A leading British architectural presence since th e1980s, the Nicholas Grimshaw practice has truly emerged on the world-scene in the 1990s, responsible for a variety of high-profile commissions in the UK, Europe and the Far East, famously including Waterloo International Terminal in London. This third volume of the latest work of the practice, demonstrating its emphasis on structural finesse and the employment of the latest technology, features - among other projects - the Eden Project in Cornwall funded by the Millennium Commission, the Ludwig Erhard Haus, Berlin and the A Coruna art gallery in Spain. The monograph shows the consolidation of the practice's work and points towards its further exciting development.
