Alison & Peter Smithson: From the House of the Future to a House for Today
Rotterdam, 010 Publishers 2004
238pp + (2)pp. Long 4to. Flimsy wrappers with fold ins. Very good but preserved in adhesive plastic covering. This title examines the evolution of the Smithsons' approach to designs for individual dwellings. Includes texts by the architects. It traces their work from New Brutalism, through the 1960s Pop Art Movement to their later work. In doing so it spans the period which Nigel Whiteley was most interested in.
