The architecture of Michael Hopkins' formative years has evolved into something that defies easy stylistic categorization. In buildings such as the Glyndebourne Opera House, the Inland Revenue Centre and the New Parliamentary Building, a new individuality has emerged. These works have the uncompromising quality of certain nineteenth-century industrial buildings, yet they have gained acceptance among some of Britain's most ancient institutions. They are often hybrid creations, juxtaposing strongly contrasting elements, while also remaining loyal to a strict code of truth to materials and honesty of expression. Traditional and new forms of construction are combined in unconventional ways, often using innovative prefabrication techniques, but without sacrificing traditional craft virtues.Detailed presentations of twenty-six buildings and projects analyse the genesis and logic of a unique, and now instantly recognizable, architecture. The book's publication coincides with Hopkins' most importantcommission to date: the New Parliamentary Building in London, which has an extensive presentation and is the subject of an essay by Patrick Hodgkinson. An essay by respected architecture critic Charles Jencks examines themes and historical precedent in the buildings, and an interview with Michael Hopkins gives a personal perspective to the work and office of Michael Hopkins and Partners.

The photographs are colorful, and chosen strategically to highlight each letter being taught. The Mister Doodle books also have a “hidden” layer of educational content for hours of fun learning!
