Synopsis : This title discusses the work of two of the most eminent contemporary British architects, Edward Jones and Sir Jeremy Dixon. With distinguished careers spanning four decades, their works separately and, since 1989, in partnership range from the Royal Opera House in London to Mississauga City Hall in Canada and from the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds to the Business School for Oxford University. Although they have built throughout the UK, it is to London above all that Dixon Jones have devoted their energies - and it is on London that they have made the greatest impact. Some of the capital's most important public buildings - the Royal Opera House, the National Portrait Gallery, the courtyard of Somerset House - have been given a new life by their deft interventions, transforming what were previously somewhat austere institutions into vital and valued components of the public realm. In this publication, the buildings and projects of Jeremy Dixon and Edward Jones, from their student days to the present, are fully documented with drawings, photographs and essays by critics and clients, as well as comments by the architects. Alan Colquhoun, Robert Maxwell and Kenneth Powell provide an in-depth critical interpretation while Sir Jeremy Isaacs and Charles Saumarez Smith - clients for the Royal Opera House and National Portrait Gallery respectively - offer a unique insight into the process of working with Dixon Jones.
