Alison and Peter Smithson

AS in DS

An Eye on the Road

An illustrated diary by the architects Alison and Peter Smithson (representing the Independent Group – see also As found) driving from their London office through to their Wiltshire cottage, their “Solar Pavilion” from 1961. The contrast of their Citroën DS 19, streamlined and mechanically advanced, with the luscious and picturesque landscape links – thanks to the observing eye – both the urban and the countryside in the most sensitive manner. The book was conceived as “A Sensibility Primer.” Reprint of the original publication from 1983, edited by Christian Sumi, architect, Zürich.
