Mound Stand, Lord's cricket ground, Michael Hopkins and Partners

£9.99

Product description

An introductory essay preceding numerous coloured and black and white illustrations tells the story of this pavilion which was designed by Michael Hopkins and built for the public at Lords Cricket Ground and funded by Paul Getty. It is a highly technical version of the traditional village green marquee.;The pavilion itself is described as having a traditional brickwork colonnade supporting a fabric roof which lets diffused light through onto the stand below. A particular feature of the structure is the manner in which the roof is suspended by a system of tensed steel cables and compression members held in balance.;This monograph gives an illustrated narrative account of how this work came about, analyzes its performance and documents the building by means of a full set of scaled technical drawings which emphasize the steel riggins and fittings and by 30 pages of large-format photographs (many in colour).;The text is intended for use by architects and architectural students; it is also expected that cricket enthusiasts will find the book of interest.;As part of the "Architecture in Detail" series this book does not carry a contents list. The common layout of the books in the series is: essay, photographs, specially commissioned drawings, reference details (bibliography and chronology). Each of these monographs is designed to be a complete and accurate archival record and intended to be the standard reference on that building for students and scholars as well as practising architects.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
