Main Description
Since its foundation in 1987, Bennetts Associates has won numerous awards for its work and has established itself in the UK as one of the leading architecture practices of its generation. This is the first book to examine the firm's ethos and the themes behind its buildings. Four aspects of Bennetts Associates' work are considered in depth-Perception, Form, Construction and Process-drawing on over 30 built projects in detail, as well as many others in various stages of design and construction. These projects, include Hampstead Theatre, the Wessex Water Headquarters, Brighton Central Library and the New Street Square development in the City of London. Each of the underlying themes is examined in turn by four well-known writers or commentators - academics Richard Weston and Peter Carolin, design process theorist Frank Duffy and art consultant Vivien Lovell.
