Editorial Reviews

Rigorous investigation, careful thought and the relentless testing of ideas has always been at the core of work by Grimshaw Architects. As the world's population grows in numbers and in wealth, the consumption of limited resources is accelerating. Humanity now faces its most serious challenge to ensuring its continued and prosperous existence. Setting a new sustainable course for growth and development will take imagination, creativity, ingenuity, and, most importantly, the sharing of ideas in order to rapidly evolve a new relationship with our planet and conserve its precious resources. Grimshaw's more investigative work often remains in the studio or lies concealed within the final constructed project. In response to issues of increasing global concern, the practice is now sharing this investigation and thinking with fellow colleagues; architects, designers, engineers and clients. It is the hope of the practice that this process will enrich the quest for innovative solutions. This first edition focuses on the issues surrounding Water, Energy and Waste. The introductory essay by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw describes the evolution of the practice's culture using six key projects, ranging from early industrial work and influences to large scale projects of global recognition: The Eden Project, The British Pavilion for Expo '92, and the International Terminal Waterloo. The themes explored range from city infrastructure to closed loop systems; within the context of food the text addresses very theoretical ideas on urban farming and Via Verde, an affordable housing project in the Bronx with a series of roof terraces forming an urban market garden. The collection of essays on water is equally diverse, featuring a solar powered desalination system inspired by a Namibian fog beetle and the Croton Water Filtration Plant, also in the Bronx and currently under construction to supply part of Manhattan's drinking water.
