About the book:

The Financial Times Print Works, designed by architects Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners is one of the most acclaimed new buildings in London, winner of seven architectural awards in 1988 (the year of its completion), and a landmark on the eastern approaches to the city. This sheer glass structure, with its delicate metal framing, is one of the best examples of the "high-tech" school of design which has been Britain's principal architectural achievement in recent years. The building is of major interest to architects and engineers everywhere for the way it encloses the massive yet sensitive machine installations inside; and in the stylishness and elegance of its construction. Both of these aspects are fully discussed in the text, illustrated in the set of photographs (many in full colour), and recorded in the 14-page section of specially-drawn technical details. The book is part of the "ADT Architecture in Detail" series. The books do not carry a contents list. The common layout of the books in the series is: essay, photographs, specially commissioned drawings, reference details (bibliography and chronology). Each of these monographs is designed to be a complete and accurate archival record and intended to be the standard reference on that building for students and scholars as well as practising architects.
