Cedric Price: London’s South Bank
PRICE had a lateral approach to architecture and to time-based urban interventions which ensured that his work has an enduring influence.
He had a desire for ‘Doubt, Delight and Change’. This was clearly demonstrated in his 1984 proposal for the redevelopment of London’s South Bank. Here he anticipated the London Eye by suggesting that a giant ferris wheel should be set in a public space extending out onto the River Thames.
Price had a proposal for a raft of ballons forming a canopy, whose height could vary in order to accomodate temporary exhibitions underneath. The site was described by Price as "London's last lung", on which further permanent building should be avoided.
