Cedric Price

  • CountryUnited Kingdom
  • Born1934

Cedric Price’s influence goes far beyond his work as an architect and will remain enormous, through drawings, proposals and recorded ideas. Price was the son of the architect AJ Price and began reading architecture at St John’s College, Cambridge.

In 1959, while completing his studies at the Architectural Association in London, he encountered the urban theorist Arthur Korn, an Austrian émigré whose work helped Price to develop his own ideas on the indeterminacy of form and instability of conventions. In Fun Palace (1961), Potteries Thinkbelt (1964), and Interaction Centre, built in London’s Kentish Town in 1971, Price used architecture as the catalyst to redefine relationships between people and institutions.
