Arup Associates, a major presence on the
British architectural scene for more than half a century, emerged from the
famous engineering consultancy founded by Ove Arup in 1946 and reflected Arup's
own vision of "total design", formed in the 1930s in his groundbreaking
collaborations with Berthold Lubetkin. With architects, engineers and other
professionals working in groups, it offered a uniquely interdisciplinary
approach to the design of buildings.

From early groundbreaking factories to a
series of university commissions, innovative offices, and cultural projects, including
the Snape Maltings concert hall, the practice moved on to become a major player
on the London development scene with its projects at Finsbury Avenue and
Broadgate.
This book, the first monograph on Arup Associates for more than 30
years, discusses the work of the firm from the years of the Arup Building Group
in the 1950s to the 1990s and assesses the contribution of its leading designers,
including Sir Philip Dowson, Derek Sugden and Peter Foggo. The text is based on
interviews with many former and current members of the practice. The book is
fully illustrated with images from the Arup archive and stunning new
photography offering a new perspective on an exceptional body of work.
