Michael Wilford: With Michael Wilford and Partners, Wilford Schupp Architekten and Others looks at the work of one of the most internationally respected British architects working in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. The book is written by Robert Maxwell, Emeritus Professor of Architecture at Princeton University, and author and academic Professor Anthony Vidler, Dean of Cooper Union School of Architecture. Original writing by Michael Wilford is also included, presenting the architect's work, together with his partners Laurence Bain, Russell Bevington and Manuel Schupp, in detail from both a historical and theoretical perspective.
Michael Wilford: With Michael Wilford and Partners, Wilford Schupp Architekten and Others features well-known projects including The Lowry and the British Embassy in Berlin alongside hitherto largely unpublished projects such as The Singapore National Arts Center and Abando Transport Interchange in Bilbao. In 1960 Michael Wilford joined the practice created by James Stirling and James Gowan in 1956. The Stirling/Wilford partnership was established in 1971 and continued until James Stirling's death in 1992, after which Michael Wilford continued the trajectory of the earlier work, whilst creating a clear identity post-Stirling. Michael Wilford's work has gained international renown and includes significant public buildings such as performing art centres, art galleries, business headquarters, museums and libraries located around the world.
