€52.00
di Robert Maxwell - Anthony Vidler
 

Michael Wilford: Buildings and Projects 1992-2012 is written by Robert Maxwell, Emeritus Professor of Architecture at Princeton University, and author and academic Professor Anthony Vidler, Dean of Cooper Union School of Architecture. Original writing by Michael Wilford is also included, presenting the architect's work, together with his partners Laurence Bain, Russell Bevington, and Manuel Schupp, in detail from both a historical and theoretical perspective. Michael Wilford: Buildings and Projects 1992-2012 features well-known projects including The Lowry and British Embassy in Berlin alongside hitherto largely unpublished projects such as The Singapore National Arts Center and Abando Transport Interchange in Bilbao. 

In 1960 Michael Wilford joined the practice created by James Stirling and James Gowan in 1956. The Stirling/Wilford partnership was established in 1971 and continued until James Stirling's death in 1992, after which Michael Wilford continued the trajectory of the earlier work, whilst creating a clear identity post-Stirling. 

Michael Wilford's work has gained international renown and includes significant public buildings such as performing art centres, art galleries, business headquarters, museums and libraries located around the world. Continuing in the tradition of the 'Black' and 'White' books (James Stirling Buildings and Projects 1950-1974, and James Stirling Michael Wilford Buildings and Projects 1975-1992), produced by James Stirling and Michael Wilford in 1975 and 1994, Michael Wilford: Buildings and Projects 1992-2012 brings up to date Wilford's legacy with respect to contemporary British and international architecture.
