Publisher's description: Jan Kaplicky (1937-2009) was a visionary architect with a passion for drawing. It was his way of discovering, describing and constructing; and through drawing he presented beguiling architectural imagery of the highest order. Many of his sketches, cutaway drawings and photomontages are brought together and celebrated in this book. These drawings date from the early years of his independent practice, Future Systems, in the 1970s, to his final ink drawings, executed in the mid-1990s. Featured projects range from design studies for the International Space Station, undertaken with NASA, to the Media Centre at Lord's Cricket Ground, in London, winner of the 1999 Stirling Prize. Richard Rogers is an architect of global renown. He was one of the first people to recognise Jan Kaplicky's talent and offer him a place in his studio. Ivan Margolius is an architect and author of books on art, architecture, engineering, design and automobile history. He collaborated on a number of books with Jan Kaplicky, including For Inspiration Only. Richard Rogers on Jan Kaplicky: 'He was a draughtsman of genius. His spirited drawings were at the same time intricate andincredibly economical, able to communicate his space-age visions with just a few strokes of the pen.'
