Summary A hands-on attitude to architecture, trademark of the highly successful London-based practice Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, calls for more than the usual monograph. According to Iain Borden, Director of the Bartlett School of Architecture and author of this detailed guide to the practice of AHMM, it calls for something more like a manual. From Millenium Dome pavilion to medical centre and social housing for the Peabody Trust, from office building refurbishment to primary school and the Walsall bus station, the extra-ordinary diversity of the AHMM's projects testifies to their creative energy, optimism and eagerness to experiment. AHMM: four architects with numerous awards to their name and a rapidly-growing international reputation for innovative, pragmatic and cost effective solutions. This publication presents their collected works, fully-detailed and with a wealth of illustrations. Both monograph and manual - because architecture is about more than appearances.
