  • Year 2015

This book is part of Test Unit reading list, a summer school and events programme exploring art, design, architecture and the city. Taking place in Glasgow 3rd – 9th July 2016.

Presenting a broad selection of projects covering a twenty-five-year period, this book provides an overview of Cedric Price’s work for the first time.
Against the backdrop of the 1960s and 1970s social upheaval which manifested in London’s layout and the redesign of the city, the book focuses on Price’s approach to an increasingly technological society, as well as his search for a new language of modern architecture that could reflect the emerging information age.
