Wilkinson Eyre Architects: Works
Emma Keyte and Jay Merrick
Wilkinson Eyre Architects, established 1983 and twice winner of the prestigious Stirling Prize for architecture, is one of the UK’s leading architectural practices, with a large portfolio of both domestic and international projects to its name, as well as an industry-leading reputation for innovative and daring design. Divided into four thematic sections – Landscape, Sky, Water and City – Wilkinson Eyre Architects: Works is a richly illustrated survey of approximately 30 of the firm’s most significant projects, from the dramatic large-scale glasshouses at the Gardens by the Bay, Singapore, and the spectacular Crown Hotel at Barangaroo South, Sydney, to the proposed redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, London. Beginning with an engaging introduction by Jay Merrick, architecture critic for The Independent newspaper, this beautifully designed and authoritative volume concludes with a comprehensive reference section, including an illustrated summary of more than 100 of the firm’s projects dating from 2005 onwards, biographies of its principal members and details of some of its many awards.
