HAT one of '50 Architects 50 Buildings' in new book
We're really pleased to have a piece by Tom and Hana on Alison and Peter Smithson's Economist Plaza included in '50 Architects 50 Buildings', just published by Batsford in conjunction with the Twentieth Century Society.
"The Economist scheme resists flashy statements in favour of a quiet subversion."
The book includes interviews with 50 contemporary architects, each selecting a building that has inspired them and made a lasting impact on their own work. It's a varied and sometimes surprising cross-section, including both giants and lesser known gems and full of insight into how we continue to be shaped by the built world around us.
