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.
