Riassunto: This Monograph assesses the position of the James Stirling, Michael Wilford & Associates office at the present time, revealing its plans to continue the high quality of work, despite the tragic death of Sir James Stirling. A varied selection of built, in-progress and as yet unrealised projects for the future is presented and includes: the Braun headquarters, Melsungen, Germany; the Biennale book shop, Venice; the Science Library, Irvine, Los Angeles; the Faculty of Architecture, Newcastle, Australia; and the scheme for an arts centre, Salford, England. All projects are presented in full colour wherever possible. The beautiful drawings for which Stirling Wilford & Associates has become so well known assist in an understanding of the building and the high level of communication with all parties which the partnership regards as a priority. An essay by Michael Wilford provides an incisive and revealing retrospective of his many years in partnership with James Stirling, and discusses both past and present work. Kenneth Powell provides a perceptive and comprehensive analysis of the firm's oeuvre; Michael Spens contributes a personal interpretation of the firm's recent work and Barry Maitland adds an extra dimension with a description of the scheme by Michael Wilford at Newcastle, Australia. A new look at one of the best known architectural firms of our time. A rare insight into the post, present and future of this influential practice. Comprehensive coverage of 14 recent and current projects. Essay contributions by Michael Wilford, Kenneth Powell and Michael Spens.
