Nigel Coates: The City In Motion

by Rick Poynor

From the book's cover:

Surreal, provocative, outrageous, Nigel Coates is the architect who lashed an aircraft wing to the facade of a Tokyo department store and built a petrified Noah's Ark to house a restaurant. Nobody has better captured the restless, image-saturated mood of the late 1980s, in which ideas ricochet back and forth from London to Tokyo and New York.

Blending the rhetoric of the Futurists with the gritty sensibilities of British street culture, Coates's challenging approach sets out to create richer possibilities for architecture in the late twentieth-century city. Remarkably, Coates has been able to turn his visionary ideas into reality, with major buildings in Japan and a series of striking interiors in London. Nobody has managed to straddle the line between fashion and architecture the way that Coates has. His is a vital part of the international debate on the future direction of design.
