Inhaltsangabe: Cedric Price has claimed that cooking is a good metaphor for architecture, where design ideas can be developed, constructed-and given accurate user feddback-within a single sitting. Now, Price has collected some of his finest architectural recipes in the first publication on his work for almost 20 years. One of Britain's most influential architectural thinkers, Price has inspired many generations of architects. Among his realised projects are the Interaction Trust Community Centre, London, the Olympic Information Complex for the Munich Olympic Village, and an aviary for London Zoo, designed with Lord Snowdon and Frank Newby in 1961. Price's reputation and influence rest equally, however, on the radicalism of his ides. He argues against the production of permanent, specific spaces for particular functions and seeks to analyse the motivations that might give rise to a structure in the first place. "Technology is the answer," he has said, "buy what was the question?"
Re: CP contains a selection of Price's inimitable writings and drawings, as well as contributions form Arata Isozaki, Patrick Keiller and Hans Ulrich Obrist. It will be published with a Sell-By date of 28 February 2004, after the architect wishes it to be known that he may have changed his mind.
