High Tech - sometimes known as Structural Expressionism - is a style of Modern architecture that produced some of the most prominent and visually exciting buildings of the twentieth century: the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation headquarters in Hong Kong, the Lloyd's of London headquarters in London, UK, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France.

Extensively illustrated with photographs and diagrams, and accessibly written, High Tech Architecture - A style reconsidered discusses the intended meanings of the visual vocabulary involved in High Tech, and places the style in the broad context of other Modern architecture of the twentieth century. The book offers a balanced re-appraisal of the extravagant claims that have been made for High Tech, by its progenitors and by architectural critics, as an architecture appropriate for the built environment of the future.
