Abstract

Sean Griffiths, Charles Holland and Sam Jacob of FAT explain how they have developed their own brand of fit-for-purpose Radical Post-Modernism that enables them to actively engage with the specifics of any building project. They work at a diverse range of scales and programmes from art pavilions to social housing and public buildings. Not afraid to magnify the ordinary and the familiar, FAT tackle the often-thorny questions of taste and meaning head on with a joyful verve.
