Demetri Porphyrios, Principal of Porphyrios Associates, is one of the world's leading architects. His architecture of humanism has given us new insights into the use of tradition of modernity.

For him "architecture always speaks of tradition in a modern voice that invites commentary and ferrets out the new". Many have spoken of the connection between tectonics and forms but almost no one has put this in practice with the richness and maturity of Porphyrios.

Architecture he writes makes us see the building craft and technology from which it is born, from which it detaches itself as art, and to which it always alludes. His architecture is not about style it is about living traditions open to adaptation and responsive to region, climate, nature and culture.

The work presented in this volume covers a comprehensive selection of buildings and urban projects carried out by his practice in the past five years including the new Quadrangle at Magdalen College, Oxford, the New Courts, Auditorium and Library at Selwyn College.

Introduction by the historian and architect Professor Paolo Portoghesi and Dr. Oswyn Murrary, Fellow at Balliolo College, Oxford, examine his work.
