Alison and Peter Smithson, The Economist Building, St James’s Photo: Royal Academy of Arts, London
The Smithsons exercised a fascination over London’s architectural scene with a small number of iconic projects – and a keen sense of their own importance. Max Risselada discusses their theoretical and architectural impact on London, looking at such buildings as the Economist Building and the controversial Robin Hood Gardens.
