Arup Associates, Paperback / softback Book


Arup Associates, a major presence on theBritish architectural scene for more than half a century, emerged from thefamous engineering consultancy founded by Ove Arup in 1946 and reflected Arup'sown vision of "total design", formed in the 1930s in his groundbreakingcollaborations with Berthold Lubetkin.

With architects, engineers and otherprofessionals working in groups, it offered a uniquely interdisciplinaryapproach to the design of buildings.

From early groundbreaking factories to aseries of university commissions, innovative offices, and cultural projects, includingthe Snape Maltings concert hall, the practice moved on to become a major playeron the London development scene with its projects at Finsbury Avenue andBroadgate.

This book, the first monograph on Arup Associates for more than 30years, discusses the work of the firm from the years of the Arup Building Groupin the 1950s to the 1990s and assesses the contribution of its leading designers,including Sir Philip Dowson, Derek Sugden and Peter Foggo.

The text is based oninterviews with many former and current members of the practice.

The book isfully illustrated with images from the Arup archive and stunning newphotography offering a new perspective on an exceptional body of work.
