Sir Nicholas Grimshaw CBE PRA is one of Britain's most celebrated architects. His buildings, such as the Eden Project in Cornwall and the International Terminal at Waterloo Station are icons of elegant and inventive industrial design.
This book presents a selection of drawings from the sketchbooks that he has used throughout a 40 year career, revealing the importance of drawing in the development of his ideas.
Including concept sketches, detailed drawings, plans for sites and notes for presentations and speeches, the sketchbooks provide an insight into the working mind of a master architect. With illuminating essays, by Stephen Farthing and Peter Davey, exploring the key role that drawing plays in Grimshaw's own practice, this is an invaluable title for students, professionals and enthusiasts alike.
