Place and Home by Jeremy Melvin

Book Description

PRP is one of the most successful housing practices in the world. Peter Phippen, Peter Randall and David Parkes founded the practice in 1963, and since then have moved forward from their Modernist beginnings, evidenced in the post-Second World War housing boom to the diverse concerns of the twenty-first century - creating hospice care and sheltered housing for the elderly and infirm, as well as accommodating the need for sustainable, low-energy, zero-carbon developments. "Place & Home: The Search for Better Housing" comprises essays by Phippen, Randall and Parkes, Barry Munday and Chris Rudolph on PRP's past and current work, as well as texts by commissioned writers on the topics of 'place', 'building technology' and 'home' in architecture. These are interspersed with illustrated case studies of PRP's work with housing associations, local authorities and private developers, in diverse locations including Moscow, La Grande Motte, Milton Keynes, Manchester, and Brixton - the latter of which Ken Livingstone, the Mayor of London, considers "sets the standard for what we should be achieving in every social housing development in London".
