SPACE AND PLACE: ELDRED EVANS, DAVID SHALEV. Artifice Books on Architecture, London, 2016. 256 pp. with 220 col. ills. 30 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781908967893 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: Space and Place is the first monograph on the work of Evans and Shalev, one of the most significant architecture offices practicing in the UK over the last 50 years. Evans and Shalev have produced a notable body of work, including award-winning civic projects such as the Truro Crown Court, 1988, and Tate St Ives, 1993. Founded by Eldred Evans and David Shalev, the practice has been long noted for a commitment to place-making and for the care, skill and intelligence with which each project is realised. The serene and powerful buildings that the practice has designed over the years have a complexity often only revealed through their use. This is not architecture designed for the easy money shot unlike so much contemporary architecture. Space and Place includes Evans and Shalev's key early projects which demonstrate their use of raw concrete and a considered articulation of both plan and section, such as in their seminal work: Newport High School, 1969 1972 (since demolished), and their Home for the Younger Physically Handicapped in Alexandra Road, London, 1972 1976, while later projects such as the Quincentenary Library at Jesus College, Cambridge, 1995, with its use of brick and engagement with adjacent buildings, show the more contextual development of their work through the 1980s and 90s.
