About the book

Fifteen years ago it was reasonable to apply the label 'high-tech' to the work of Michael Hopkins. Today, however, with buildings such as the Glyndebourne Opera House and the New Parliamentary Building, Hopkins is perceived as a far more complex figure, perhaps even that most paradoxical of creatures - a high-tech historicist.

This monograph features all of Hopkins' major built works and projects together with essays by the book's author Colin Davies, the internationally respected critic and historian Kenneth Frampton, and the architect Patrick Hodgkinson.
