Charles Jencks moves onto contemporary British architecture by discussing the work of Cedric Price, Norman Foster, Ralph Erskine, and others. He describes Price’s Thinkbelt Project as one of Foster’s early influences, using Foster’s IBM Center and Black Piano to illustrate this further. Jencks also gives a briefe account of how, toward the mid-1970s, English architects begin to assemble and pull together many traditions of British architecture into collective cohesion, a theme that comes into much more prominence during the postmodern period.
