Exceptionally rare, as-new, first-and-only edition of this brilliant architectural monograph.

Published in 2007 by The Lighthouse and RIAS (the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland), this book marked the landmark retrospective exhibition of the same title, which ran at the Lighthouse in Glasgow from 3 November 2007 - 10 February 2008. The book and exhibition celebrated the phenomenally productive and architecturally striking period of Gillespie Kidd and Coia partners Andy Macmillan (b. 1928) Isi Metzstein (1928-2012).

Edited by the author, critic, historian and architectural educator Johnny Rodger, with contributions by architect and educator Gordon Benson, architect, critic and historian Mark Baines, and the late architect Colin St John Wilson; with editorial and archival contributions by David Buri.

Features six chapters: 'Towards the Macmillan and Metzstein Years' (pp. 6-25), 'Selected Works' (pp. 26-47) and 'Major Works' (pp. 236-243) by Johnny Rodger; 'Sources, Ideas and Lessons' (pp. 26-47) by Gordon Benson; 'Themes and Variations' (pp. 48-69) by Mark Baines; and 'An Appreciation' (pp. 232-235) by Colin St John Wilson. Additional content includes a foreward by Nick Barley, the former director of the Lighthouse, bibliography, biographies, photo credits and index.

Hundreds of black & white and colour photographs, plans, sections, elevations.
