IAN RITCHIE - LINES
With an eclectic practice embracing urban planning, public sculpture and industrial design, Ian Ritchie CBE RA is one of Britain's most visionary architects.
Ritchie writes poetry in order to better understand a project, using words to investigate the particularities or challenges of a site, and the process of composition to bring ideas into focus.
His calligraphic etchings imagine the shape or spirit of commissions in simple but powerful strokes.
Variably pragmatic, philosophical and often witty his aphorisms on life and work reveal a modernists belief in the potential of architecture to improve society.
This book brings together his poems, aphorisms and etchings for the first time.
It is a hardback book, 96 pages, 14 x 17cms with 50 illustrations.
