John Miller + Partners was established in the 1980s following the dissolution of Colquhoun Miller + Partners. The practice has been responsible for some of the most highly regarded museum and university projects of the past 25 years, such as the Tate Britain Centenary Development and the Queen's Building for the University of East Anglia, as well as projects for the Fitzwilliam Museum, the National Portrait Gallery and Warwick University. Custom and Innovation examines John Miller's indebtedness to Modernism and sets out the practice's departure from strict modernist precedents by showing its work to be wholly contemporary and of its moment. The book is complimented by informed essays from three prestigious authors from the UK and America and is handsomely illustrated with specially commissioned drawings, photographs, models and renderings. Custom and Innovation comprehensively profiles this outstanding highly respected architectural firm and is a fitting extension to Black Dog Publishing's books on modern and contemporary architecture, sure as those on Colin St John Wilson, James Gowan and Trevor Dannatt.
