Living Tradition : The Architecture and Urbanism of Hugh Petter, Hardback Book

Living Tradition : The Architecture and Urbanism of Hugh Petter Hardback



Living Tradition: The Architecture and Urbanism of Hugh Petter celebrates the exceptional professional achievement of one of the world's leading traditional architects.

It showcases recent highlights from Hugh's award-winning portfolio, including handsome new country houses; major alterations and refurbishment of historic buildings; a significant new building for Trinity College in Oxford; and commercial development at all scales with landed estates across the UK and beyond.

His pioneering work as masterplanner for the Duchy of Cornwall is regularly cited as an exemplar of a community that reflects local identity.

Written by Clive Aslet, with a foreword by The Former Prince of Wales, this book reveals how a series of iconic buildings came to be.

Richly illustrated with newly commissioned photography by Dylan Thomas, one of Britain's foremost photographers of architecture and interiors, this book reveals the working process of the architect.

Common to all the buildings in this book - whether a new or historic private house, a public building, or a masterwork of urban design - is a loving attention to detail and materials, and an architect who cares deeply for his craft.
