Description

This text covers the increasing trend of the British establishment to force much of the innovative architectural talent out of the UK to other locations around the world where they find the support to build their designs. Only once these architects have established themselves are they invited back to create buildings within the country in which they live. This phenomena first occurred with James Stirling, Norman Foster and Richard Rogers, and more recently with architects such as Will Alsop, Nigel Coates and Zaha Hadid. This book also explores the work of some of the "home-grown" talent which has been allowed to thrive in Britain, such as Piers Gough, Richard McCormac and Edward Cullinan, as well as some of the younger generation which is just beginning to make its mark.
