Overview

Will Alsop is one of the most exciting British architects working today. The designer of such striking, often colorful, buildings as Le Grand Bleu in Marseille, the Passenger and Ferry Terminal in Hamburg and, more recently, North Greenwich Station on the new Jubilee Line Extension in London. This book examines not only his architecture, but also his distinctive creative process. It reveals how Alsop's early training as a painter-unusual for an architect—had a profound impact on his approach to architecture. Alsop sees architecture as a collective effort involving the architect, the client, the community, and not merely a form of personal artistic expression. Created in close co-operation with Alsop himself, this volume is profusely illustrated with sketches, paintings, plans and photographs.
