KEITH WILLIAMS. Architecture of the Specific

Europe’s rising star of architecture—use of architecture to transform the public realm—major cultural and civic projects

This is the first major book showcasing the key works of one of Britain’s rising architectural stars. Believing that making architecture is a process of refining things to their essence, Williams includes explorations of light, form, space, scale, and materiality among his guiding principles.

Working across a diverse range of building types, Williams is a passionate believer in architecture’s positive potential to transform the public realm. He has spent much of his career designing major cultural and civic projects, but has also worked at many scales from city plans through interior transformations, to furniture and product design.

Williams regards each design challenge as a holistic endeavour to achieve appropriateness, balance and beauty; a task that he sees as independent of scale.

– Features critical essays by Kenneth Powell, Sandra O’Connell and Paul Finch
