Coinciding with the publication of Cedric Price Works 1952-2003: A Forward-minded Retrospective by Samantha Hardingham (co-published by the Architectural Association and the Canadian Centre for Architecture), and a one-day symposium celebrating the work of Cedric Price, the AA presents Memory Bank by Jan Nauta and Victor Vroegindeweij.
The installation tells the story of Cedric Price through interviews with a number of people who were close to him; whilst the book brings together, for the first time, all of Price’s projects, articles and talks – aiming to present his munificence as thinker, philosopher and designer. Price was a student at the AA in the 1950s, established his office in London in 1960 and went on to produce some of the most intensely imaginative and experimental architecture of the latter half of the 20th century. His work is central in defining the architectural discourse around the emerging post-war themes of mobility and indeterminacy in design.
