After Metropolis features a selection of Powell Tuck Associates´ key projects, from their first groundbreaking work the Metropolis Recording Studios in London, which they won in 1989 to their most recent alterations and new buildings, including Bloomberg, Riverside One, Deepwater and Stamford Brook. Through the evaluation of these projects, the book will demonstrate the practice´s approach to architecture and design, setting out their guiding principals, influences and attitudes, therefore emphasising their engagement with existing buildings, attention to the interconnection of spaces and to circulation, to refined material, light and colour palettes, as well as their contemporary approach to housing and working environments.
Written by Julian Powell Tuck, founder of the practice, the book also features contributions from the writer and critic Fred Scott, the architect David Connor and the investor/businessman Carey Taylor who will offer their comment on the work of Powell Tuck Associates respectively from the point of view of the academic, the colleague and the client.
