Exploring Boundaries

This is WilkinsonEyre's second major monograph. Published by Birkhäuser, it explores the practice's work from 2000 onwards. It analyses 15 buildings and structures, starting with two RIBA Stirling Prize winning buildings, the Magna Centre and Gateshead Millennium Bridge – both still 'on the drawing board' when Bridging Art and Science, the first book, was published. The monograph traces the practice's broadening profile and increasing international reach with projects such as the Tensegrity Bridge in Washington DC and the Guangzhou International Finance Center in China - which went on to win the RIBA Lubetkin Prize in 2012. These projects represent WilkinsonEyre's ability to explore the boundaries between creative and scientific territories, reaching innovative solutions which are specific to both brief and context.

The book begins with two extended essays by Kurt W. Forster and Peter Davey, which position the practice's work within the context of contemporary architecture and recent architectural theory. Peter Davey also provides detailed descriptions of the projects featured in the book, complemented by personal commentary on the design process of each by Chris Wilkinson and Jim Eyre.
