Overview:The Mound Stand, Lord's Cricket Ground, London 1987, Michael Hopkins and Partners - Architecture in Detail - An introductory essay preceding numerous coloured and black and white illustrations tells the story of this pavilion which was designed by Michael Hopkins and built for the public at Lords Cricket Ground and funded by Paul Getty. It is a highly technical version of the traditional village green marquee. The pavilion itself is described as having a traditional brickwork colonnade supporting a fabric roof which lets diffused light through onto the stand below. A particular feature of the structure is the manner in which the roof is suspended by a system of tensed steel cables and compression members held in balance. This monograph gives an illustrated narrative account of how this work came about, analyzes its performance and documents the building by means of a full set of scaled technical drawings which emphasize the steel riggins and fittings and by 30 pages of large-format photographs (many in colour). The text is intended for use by architects and architectural students; it is also expected that cricket enthusiasts will find the book of interest. As part of the "Architecture in Detail" series this book does not carry a contents list. The common layout of the books in the series is: essay, photographs, specially commissioned drawings, reference details (bibliography and chronology). Each of these monographs is designed to be a complete and accurate archival record and intended to be the standard reference on that building for students and scholars as well as practising architects.
