The Power of Process: The Architecture of Michael Pearson [Signed]

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

[Signed by Michael Pearson and in perfect condition]
The Power of Process explores Michael Pearson's fascinating career, from his work in British architecture in the 1960's and 70's through to his innovative projects of the 90's to the present. Michael Pearson is past President of the Architectural Association, London's prestigious architecture school. The Power of Process sets out the importance of Michael Pearson and his work, from his initial work within the family firm, his teaching and presidency of the Architectural Association, to small-scale artists' studios and large-scale hospital planning, to the first thorough appreciation of Burne House, his most important work. The title The Power of Process, refers to Michael Pearson's abiding concern for 'process' in modern architecture -- that is, how the conception and making of architecture is driven by information systems, the inter-connectedness between a buildings use, how it is manufactured and, importantly how its use can adapt and change over time. As such, his interest in process puts him at the forefront of the British High-Tech architecture, more famously associated with Richard Rogers and Norman Foster.
