Edited by Adam Caruso and Helen Thomas
At the start of the 1980s, Michael Hopkins and Partners was a successful architecture firm in London, with a solid track record of design and building. By the end of the 1990s, they were far more impressive having established themselves as innovators at the highest level. That work is most evident in five urban buildings in England that they built in that period; those buildings are the focus of Hopkins in the City. In addition to close examinations of those buildings, including survey drawings and new photographs, the book offers building studies from five contemporary European architects and Michael Hopkins's own perspective as presented in his lecture "Technology Comes to Town." Essays by Adam Caruso and Helen Thomas, meanwhile, frame the British scene and revisit the fundamental issues of technology, style, and context that run through discussions of twentieth-century architecture.
