Living Tradition: The Architecture and Urbanism of Hugh Petter celebrates the exceptional professional achievement of one of the world’s leading traditional architects. It showcases recent highlights from Hugh’s award-winning portfolio, including handsome new country houses; major alterations and refurbishment of historic buildings; a significant new building for Trinity College in Oxford; and commercial development at all scales with landed estates across the UK and beyond. His pioneering work as masterplanner and architect for the Duchy of Cornwall is regularly cited by the UK Government and others as an exemplar of an integrated, mixed-use, walkable community that reflects local identity, responds to local needs and encourages a more sustainable lifestyle. Common to all the buildings in this book – whether a new or historic private house, a public building, or urban design – is a loving attention to detail and materials, and an architect who cares deeply for his craft.
