We worked with the Royal Academy to write a history of the Architecture Prize and to present a comprehensive catalogue of this year’s show
Client: Lend Lease
It’s absolutely fantastic. We didn’t realise it would be this good!
Caroline Massey, Lend Lease
Thirty years on from the Royal Academy of Arts’ first Architecture Awards, this publication commemorates the accolade that honours excellence in architectural design.
Each year the Academy houses the summer exhibition to celebrate the artistry that exists in model-making, photography and drawing – those essential elements of architecture that can often be overshadowed by the actual buildings that are created.
A brilliant piece of editorial. Really useful and very thorough.
Peter Barber, Director, Peter Barber Architects
To accompany these important awards, this publication not only showcases every single entry to the 2012 Summer Exhibition but also explores the link between the Royal Academy and architecture, the history of the exhibition, and why sponsor Lend Lease believes it is so important to back the initiative.
