From The Inside Flap: Oct 28, 2005
If ever there was an opportunity to enrich British infrastucture in the new spirit of architecture, the millennium has delivered it. The coincidence of the new century and the availability of vast resources from the profite of the National Lottery has led to a transformation of architecture in Britain unthought of just a few years ago. Not only the largest covered structure in the world - the Millennium Dome, on which views are divided - but fourteen landmark projects including museums, bridges, state-of-the-art visitor attractions, and botanic gardens; plus nearly two hundred smaller projects on the themes of revitalising cities, encouraging environmental sustainability, supporting the community, and investing in education. The selection presented here, made on the advice of our editorial board and consultants includes more than twenty projects from both mojor architects and innovative and younger practices now given unexpected opportunities, together with an exhaustive listing of all of them. Architects featured include:
- Foster and Partners - Terry Farrell & Partners - Mark Fisher - Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners LTD. - Zaha Hadid - Herzog & De Meuron - Michael Hopkins and Partners - Eva Jiricna - Land Design Studio - Lifschutz Davidson - MacCormac Jamieson Prichard - David Marks Julia Barfield Architects - Enrico Miralles - Richard Rogers Partnership - Michael Wilford & Partners - Wilkinson Eyre Architects
