Homespun Futurist: The Prescient Projects of Cedric Price

The subject of a new monograph, the English architect was far more than just Fun Palace. We survey some of his most visionary projects.
Price in the inner sanctum of his practice’s architectural offices on Alfred Place in London, near the British Museum. The so-called White Room was a kind of incubator for ideas, open after hours and on Saturday mornings only to special guests. Hardingham writes that the Saturday congresses saw “leading figures from a range of fields” brainstorming “over a hearty breakfast of lamb chops, kidneys, coffee and a glass of brandy, or two.”
