This is the second volume on Eric Parry Architects, led by Eric Parry, Royal Academician and former tutor at the University of Cambridge, and covering the practice's work from 2002 to the present. Eric Parry Architects is an established and award-winning practice with a growing portfolio of notable work, varied in scope and scale. Projects include spaces for living, working, playing and learning. This volume includes projects such as the acclaimed Finsbury Square office building, the new home of the London Stock Exchange at Paternoster Square, the 20 storey office building on Aldermanbury Square in the City of London, the library and music school buildings for Bedford School, the gallery for Tim Taylor and the major refurbishment of St Martin-in-the-Fields on Trafalgar Square.
The book begins with a preface by Dalibor Vesely, distinguished architectural theoretician, before Wilfried Wang, O'Neil Ford Centennial Professor in Architecture at The University of Texas at Austin and practicing architect in Berlin, traces the refined compositional and historical sensibilities in the designs of Eric Parry Architects.
