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 Universitys Head of the School of Architecture 19751989); to perhaps his most celebrated building, the British Library in St Pancras and its extension.

Colin St John Wilson: Buildings and Projects is the definitive examination of the work of one of Britain’s most eminent and prolific architects, Sir Colin St John Wilson. The book, which coincides with and celebrates St John Wilson’s 85th birthday, spans projects from throughout his career, from earlier work, such as the 1956 'This is Tomorrow' collaborative exhibition of architects and artists; to his own house in Cambridge; to, perhaps his most celebrated building, the British Library in London and its extension, to the current work he is engaged with in the masterplanning of the Royal Academy. Colin St John Wilson: Buildings and Projects beautifully illustrates the thought processes and theories behind the work, with essays, photographs, building drawings and diagrams; as well as genealogical and chronological charts, which place his architecture within its historical context. This title is a must-have for everyone with an interest in modern architecture, and provides the perfect companion to Black Dog Publishing’s re-issue of St John Wilson’s The Other Tradition of Modern Architecture: The Uncompleted Project.
