Eric Parry Architects 2 closed with a glimpse of St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square; volume 3 opens with a thorough overview of this major scheme. The book covers work from 2007 to the present, including several office buildings in both the Cities of Westminster and London; the second of two galleries for Timothy Taylor and the Spa at the Four Seasons Hotel in Mayfair. Aside from an examination of a housing project in Kuala Lumpur, and the Holburne Museum of Att in Bath, all the featured projects are in the capital. With text written by Edwin Heathcote, Financial Times Architecture and Design Critic, and an introduction by Dalibor Vesely, distinguished architectural theoretician, Eric Parry Architects 3 brings the story of this celebrated practice up to date through a thorough and rigorous examination of drawings and images alongside an erudite textual analysis of the most recent additions to the practice's body of work. The Eric Parry Architects 1 & 2 slipcase brings together the first two volumes on this award-winning practice. Beautifully illustrated, with original sketches, specially drawn plans, sections and elevations, and photography, and with introductions by Dalibor Vesely, and essays by Wilfried Wang, Eric Parry Architects 1 & 2 slipcase sets out the firm's importance within architectural discourse and traces the refined compositional and historical sensibilities informing the practice's work.
