Book Description:
The Smithsons office was very much concerned with the education of the architect. This included the Smithsons themselves, whose primary concern was always the search for and development of ideas.

Architecture is not made with the brain is a unique record of an Architectural Association symposium celebrating the essential work of Alison and Peter Smithson. The book includes readings of individual works and lively discussions that provide historical context as well as specially commissioned essays, personal accounts from clients and colleagues, and original notes reproduced from the Smithson archives.

A Silent Showing, a series of slides of the architecture of Alison and Peter Smithson, has been reproduced exclusively for this book. It was selected by Soraya, Simon, and Samantha Smithson from the family collection and features some of the finest buildings designed by their parents, and reminds us why the Smithsons are among the most important, if overlooked, British architects of the last 30 years.
