CEDRIC-PRICE-FUN-PALACEOriginal Drawings
Cedric Price – Fun Palace

“It was well into the detailed design of the project that, at an alcohol-inspired brain-storming session off Times Square in 1962, we decided on the name Fun Palace for our short-life conglomerate of disparate, free-choice, free-time, voluntary activities, planned as a public launching-pad rather than a Mecca for East London.” – Cedric Price

Precursor and inspiration to Renzo Piano and Richard Roger’s Centre Pompidou.
