ULRICH OBRIST, HANS
Cedric Price claimed that cooking is a good metaphor for architecture - a spontaneous and creative process in which design ideas can be developed, constructed and submitted to the user / consumer for approval in a single sitting. This is a collection of (the now deceased) CP's finest architectural recipes.
One of Britain's most influential architectural thinkers, Price inspired generations of architects with his radical conceptual approach. He argued against the production of confining, functional spaces and sought to analyse the motivations that might give rise to a structure in the first place. "Technology is the answer," he said, "but has the right question been asked?"
Re:CP contains a selection of Price's inimitable writings and drawings, as well as contributions from Arata Isozaki, Patrick Keiller and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
