A monograph of one of Britain's most internationally acclaimed architects. Representing the latest generation of the universally popular High Tech movement - and one of its most refined practitioners - McAslan has built his reputation on a combination of sensitive restoration/renovation projects and slick new buildings. An introduction by established architect critic Kenneth Powell gives an overview of McAslan's influences and his career, while placing him in the context of 20th-century British and international architecture. The book's core is McAslan's complete work, organized by building use (commerce, education, arts, transport and residential) and presented in photographs, sketches and plans. A comprehensive appendix details the specifications of each project.
