Scope and Content

File documents Generator, an unexecuted project for the Gilman Paper Company, at the White Oak Plantation, in Yulee, Florida. After an initial investigation Cedric Price proposed a complex that could accommodate company activities, cultural events, and artist residencies and would provide "a menu of items for individual and group demands of space, control, containment and delight. A place to work, create, think, and stare." ('Architectural Review', Jan. 1980, 16). The design called for timber-framed structures with variable infill panels and cladding, along with screens, to be placed on a grid of concrete pads by cranes with the help of computers in response to users' needs. Conceptual, schematic and design development drawings show grid placement, site layout, landscaping, designs for cubes and components, proposed activities, axonometric views, and design notes with sketches. Development sketches, site plans, and charts include site analysis examining future growth, activity charts, shadow study plans, and axonometric details. Drawings of the structures include: plans, elevations, details, and perspective views for cubes, screens, and cladding; shadow studies for cube variations; and axonometric views of cube arrangements. Other drawings include: site plans and sections; landscaping and parking layouts; plans for circulation patterns; drawings for boardwalks; and electrical and drainage plans. Charts study design validity, activities, networks, project feasibility, component life-cycle, and cube and component placement/construction sequencing. Computer generated printouts by John Frazer, et al show perspective views of cubes from various viewpoints. Two sets of annotated reprographic copies show details for a typical cube and the foundation. Presentation and publication materials include: photographs and reprographic copies of design models; coloured reprographic copies of computer parts and facilities; a coloured air-brushed rendering of cubes and screens by "Jeremie '77"; two perspective renderings; and reprographic copies made from published material. Some material in this file was published in 'Building Design', 23 February 1979; 'Building Design', 9 November 1979; 'Architectural Review' (January 1980), 16-17; 'L'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui', December 1980; 'Techniques et Architecture', December 1980; 'Design', January 1981; 'New Scientist', 19 March 1981; 'Schemes: Cedric Price' (ex. cat.; London: Waddington Galleries, 1981); 'Cedric Price-Works II' (London: Architectural Press, 1984), 90, 92-97. Material in this file was produced between 1959 and 1995, but predominantly between 1976 and 1980.

Main consultants for Generator in the United Kingdom include Felix J. Samuely & Partners, consulting engineers; Baker, Wilkins and Smith, quantity surveyors; John Frazer, computer modelling and systems; Sandy Brown Associates, acoustic consultants. Main consultants in the United States include Marvin Boutwell; Law Engineering Testing Company as consulting engineers; and WTCA; Robertson Ward Jr., as architects.

Computer printouts in group DR1995:0280:538-552 in Generator (AP144.S2.D100) are attributed to John and Julia Frazer, Art and Design Research, Ulster Polytechnic and the Department of Architecture, Liverpool Polytechnic.

Some material in group DR1995:0280:567-576 is attributed to Felix J. Samuely & Partners.

File contains conceptual drawings, design, development drawings, presentation drawings, photographic materials, boxes, an artefact, models, and textual records.
