Research output: Non-textual outputDesign


Design of Architecture and the ‘Special Relationship’ by Murray Fraser with Joe Kerr. Published by Routeldge in 2007. With particular reference to the field of architecture, this text examines the economic and political consequences for Britain of the post-war Anglo-American 'special relationship', providing detailed studies of key buildings and urban planning initiatives, blended with a wider theoretical analysis of socio-economic and cultural developments. By looking at the effects on a highly developed Western country of a more powerful ally on which it was becoming increasingly dependent, the bookcritically revisitsthe usual themes of post-colonial studies, making this a thought-provoking and innovative analysis. Won the 2008 RIBA President’s Award for Outstanding University-Located Research and the 2008 Bruno Zevi Book Prize from the International Committee of Architectural Critics for the best architectural book published anywhere in the world in the previous year.
