Scope and Content

File documents a competition entry for a new pier on the Thames in the City of Westminster, London, England. The Westminster pier project consisted of a restaurant with deck and observation tower, a fixed pier or public walkway, a catwalk, various ramps, and a pontoon. Existing conditions drawings and photographs include: a hydrographic plan, site plan, and section of the pier and pier edge; an enlarged contact sheet of photographs of the site and surrounding area; and a photocopy of a photograph of a typical pier boat, possibly used for reference purposes. Conceptual sketches include numerous thumbnail and annotated diagrammatic sketches which explore the functional relationships of the areas encompassed by the project. Design development drawings show sections through river embankments, restaurant and tower structures, walkways, ramps, and catwalks, at high and low tide and at night and during the day. Axonometric drawings show the principal structures, circulation paths, and access and control points. A group of drawings are probably a competition entry set marked by a hole punched in the upper right hand corner. Presentation panels are composed of reproductions of photographs of the existing site with overdrawing and montage which shows Price's project in relationship to the river. Two presentation panels which show the walkway/ramp, pontoon, and restaurant in partial elevation have been coloured with airbrush. Duplicate reprographic copies were made from the original design development drawings, and some are annotated with notes. File also contains clippings about "sub-marine engineering" which are possibly related to this project. Material in this file was produced in 1979.

File contains conceptual drawings, presentation drawings, reference drawings, presentation panels, and textual records.
