Greg Penoyre and Sunand Prasad (recently elected President of the RIBA) have been in practice together for 18 years. In that time, they have garnered an eclectic portfolio of buildings that are both visually striking and practical, and for a variety of uses, including education, healthcare, housing and culture. Transformations: The Architecture of Penoyre & Prasad consists of eight essays written by Prasad: "The Anchor of Function; " "Architecture, Art and Culture; " "Plan Section and Elevation; " "Who Designs?; " "From DIY to PFI; " "Environments for Healing; " "Environments for Learning; " and "Working with Existing Buildings." These texts discuss Penoyre and Prasad's engagement with their clients and examines its relationship to both architectural history and the contemporary situations and purposes for which the practice works.
