The book exemplifies Arup Associates vision of the state of architecture, as demonstrated by current and future projects of the practice. It is divided into three sections: an explanation of unified design; a demonstration of the sustainable agenda that is a the heart of this practice, and a complementary series of essays by respected commentators outside of the practice that place the vision of people-focused design in the context of other critical social thought. The content of the book is a straightforward, critical reflection on contemporary architecture - a manifesto of sorts, polemical in parts, philosophical; and determined to set an honest agenda. The objective is to have a straight-talking, hands-on quality: this is the strength of the book, and its attraction for readers.
