Cedric Price Works 1952–2003
A Forward Minded Retrospective
Cedric Price Works 1952-2003: A Forward-Minded Retrospective by Samantha Hardingham is a two-volume anthology, co-published by the Architectural Association (AA) and the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), and is supported by the Graham Foundation and the Cedric Price Estate. The books bring together for the first time all of the projects, articles and talks of British architect Cedric Price, aiming to present his munificence as thinker, philosopher and designer. A student at the AA in the 1950s, Price established his office in London in 1960 and went on to produce some of architecture’s most intensely imaginative and experimental projects of the latter half of the 20th century. His work is central in defining architectural discourse around the emerging postwar themes of mobility and indeterminacy in design.

“Drawings, texts, models, recordings, books and reference material are all presented here as tantalising fragments of Cedric Price’s very big life picture. It is the aim of these two volumes to provide a springboard from which to dive into Price’s world.” Samantha Hardingham
