Cedric Price (1934-2003) was a futuristic British architect who believed that architecture should enable people to "think the unthinkable". He is best known as a teacher and for his (unbuilt) projects such as the 'House of Fun' - an entertainment centre in north London designed, in his words, as a "kit of parts" to be continuously remodelled according to changing needs - and the 'Potteries ThinkBelt', a reaction against the monumentalism of many new university campuses being built in Britain, which instead envisioned dispersed learning by students of a new university in The Potteries in moveable units and mobile rail-borne classrooms in the derelict landscape of the north Staffordshire conurbation.
