Berthold Lubetkin: Architecture and the Tradition of Progress is the definitive account of the life and works of Berthold Lubetkin (1901-1990), Britain's leading Modernist architect. He was awarded the RIBA Royal Gold Medal for Architecture and he is believed to have more listed buildings to his credit than any other twentieth century architect in Britain. Following a 20-year friendship, author and architect John Allan documents unpublished drawings, photographs, and extracts of writing in this richly illustrated study. Allan sets Lubetkin's work in the wider historical, social and political environment of the time. From Lubetkin's early work in Paris in the 1920s, when he was acquainted with renowned architects such as August Perret and Le Corbusier through to the work of his practice Tecton, the book provides a comprehensive account of his landmark buildings for London Zoo, Finsbury Borough Council and the famous Highpoint apartments. His post-war work, including the troubled project to build Peterlee New Town, is also fully covered. Originally published in 1992 by RIBA Publications, this updated and comprehensive study is an essential book for students of architecture and the modern period, practitioners of architecture and design alike, as well as anyone with an interest in one of the great figures in twentieth century architecture

Report of the Independent Power Producers Review Panel by British Columbia( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summarizes findings of a review panel given the tasks of comparing the social costs of five short-listed independent power producer proposals originating in response to a request for proposals from BC Hydro in 1994. Begins with background on the BC Hydro request and a description of the five proposals, including two cogeneration projects at pulp mills and three small hydroelectric projects. This is followed by description of BC Hydro's own least-cost project for new energy supply, a repowering of the Burrard thermal plant. Chapter two discusses various methodological issues in the comparison, including Vancouver Island transmission credits, the social costing framework used, and the manner in which environmental costs and benefits are evaluated. The five proposals are ranked in relationship to that least-cost project and issues of project sequencing and premium price determination are discussed in chapter three. The premium price is that which is necessary to support BC Hydro acquisition of electricity from any project with lower social costs but higher corporate costs than BC Hydro's least-cost alternative. Concludes with recommendations based on the findings regarding the preferred project
