MIMESIS: LYNCH ARCHITECTS. Artifice Books on Architecture, London, 2015. 224 pp. with 301 ills. (227 col.). 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781908967664 In English.
Publisher's description: Mimesis broadly concerns the work of lynch architects -- with a focus on the practice's interest in the ideas of mimesis and civic architecture -- and revolves around their recent body of work in Victoria Street, London, including Kings Gate Court, Westminster City Hall and Kings Gate, Westminster City School and the Zig Zag Building. With a view to rebuilding the Victoria Street area of the city, which is punctuated by a number of pedestrian post-war buildings, Lynch Architects, through its use of materials, approach to public space and treatment of the deep facades that are hallmarks of the practice's architecture, are enriching the city such that it becomes a genuinely informed public space. Here the public and building users alike can participate with pleasure in a civic architecture, given all of the historical depth this term implies from the Renaissance through to contemporary architectural and urban theory. The book also foregrounds Lynch Architects' collaborative practice with artists and designers including Rut Blees Luxemburg and Timorous Beasties. Also featured are some of the practices' early celebrated works such as Marsh View, Norfolk.
