Stephen Hodder MBE is one of the most esteemed architects to emerge from Britain in the late 20th century. Contexts: The Work of Hodder + Partners brings together contributions from architectural writers, academics and journalists to review the buildings, culture and philosophy of Hodder Associates (now Hodder + Partners), founded in 1992. Including high-quality colour images of both the practice's own work and the influences on it, this book will follow the themes of placemaking, humanisation, the influence of Arne Jacobsen and the essence of 'northerness' to place the practice's influence in context.

Featuring an introduction to the development of the practice's architectural approaches, this book will look at the key buildings and approaches from Hodder + Partners, as well as the Stirling Prize-winning Centenary Building at the University of Salford.

A vital contribution to the history of one the UK's most important architectural practices, Hodder + Partners includes essays from high-profile architectural writers, including Hugh Pearman, Laura Mark, Rob Gregory, Tony Chapman and the editor, Peter Walker. It showcases the key themes and culture of Hodder + Partners that have influenced 21st century architecture, and features high-quality colour images of key projects such as the practice's work at St Catherine's College, Oxford.
