Supercrit 1: Cedric Price: Potteries Thinkbelt (November 2003)
Supercrits take major experimental projects that have ‘changed the weather’ of architectural thought - and practice and put them back into the design studio ‘crit’ format for open public and expert debate.
Presented by the panel due to Price's untimely death. Speakers included Paul Barker, Stephen Mullin, Paul Finch, Jeremy Melvin.
The Supercrit event was reviewed in AD May/June 2004
'Cedric was involved in something better than building, because it involved challenging the idea of what it was you wanted to build, and why.' Paul Finch, editor of Architectural Review
'We should see Cedric's work as part of an opportunity to remake great aspects of Britain.' Jeremy Melvin, architectural critic.
'...what I am talking about in the Thinkbelt... [is] the capacity for activities to change as a result of thoughts changing. And the resulting architecture can last as long as these thoughts are current.' Cedric Price
