Unique Building of Future Systems Summary


Unique Building of Future Systems by Jan Kaplicky

This work charts the development of one of the most extraordinary buildings of recent times. The Nat West Media Centre at Lords Cricket Ground in London is the world's first semi-monocoque structure as well as the first building ever to have been made entirely out of aluminium. Future Systems is the cutting-edge architectural firm behind this innovative structure and their collaboration with the engineering and boat building industries has resulted in this universally acclaimed building. Presented in a "diary" format, covering every stage from conception to completion, this book should appeal to architects and engineers as well as those with an interest in Lords Cricket Ground.
