Bartlett Works - Celebrating the achievements of the Bartlett School of Architecture

12 February 2004

Whether it's the new World Trade Centre, Selfridges in Birmingham or the proposed Wembley Stadium, graduates and staff of UCL's Bartlett School of Architecture have been involved in some of modern architecture's most high profile projects.

These have been brought together in a stunning new book, Bartlett Works, to be launched on Monday 16th February at 7pm at UCL. Media are invited to attend the event, and/or to contact UCL's media relations office to obtain some of the best of the images from the book.

Bartlett Works brings together building design, architectural education, film direction, furniture design, architectural journalism, history and theory, arts and architecture policy formulation.

The book is the second in a series of architectural design books to come out of The Bartlett. The first was The Bartlett Book of Ideas, which collected together a decade of significant student works. This book focuses on what happens when the student gets into the wider world.

"Tracking the works of our recent graduates for this book revealed a healthy situation out there. It was a fascinating exercise in mapping: who is where - and with whom?" said Peter Cook, RA, founder of Archigram, architect of the Kunsthaus in Austria and Chairman of the Bartlett School of Architecture.

Contributors to the book include Iain Borden, Director of the Bartlett; Christine Hawley, Design Professor at The Bartlett; Jan Kaplicky and Amanda Levete of Future Systems who designed Selfriges in Birmingham; Debra Shipley MP; Tom Dyckhoff, architecture critic at The Times.
