Their first Joint book, Celia and Deane Clark's Portsmouth A Portrait in Photographs, celebrates the changing city since 1970 when Deane was appointed Historic Buildings Architect to Portsmouth City Council in his home town.  As living organisms, cities continually change: the map of Portsmouth was redrawn as postwar rebuilding, new roads, slum clearance, land reclamation and comprehensive redevelopment reshaped it.  Conservation areas, general improvement areas and creative reuse of buildings slowed the pace of change.   While some buildings, such as South Parade Pier and the Naval Academy are under threat,  excellent new structures are given Best New Buildings awards by the Portsmouth Society.  A round Portsea Island tour completes the book.
 
Deane Clark’s Hampshire, Sussex and the Isle of Wight is the second in the popular series of his drawings and paintings of his home county and adjoining areas, where he was head of the Hampshire County Council Historic Buildings Bureau.   The images including many churches span sixty years of sketches and watercolours.  His first book, Deane Clark’s Portsmouth, has been reprinted in response to popular demand.

Celia Clark’s The Colour of Water is her third photographic book, this time incorporating poetry inspired by the sea, lakes and rivers.  Portsmouth, an island city, is surrounded by water: the seafront facing the Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Langstone Harbours and the tidal Portscreek.  She loves swimming in the sea from Southsea beach.  The powerful rivers Thames and Hudson flow through the places where their children live, and the North Sea, Atlantic on the United States’ east coast and Bermuda and the Mediterranean all inspired the photographs.

These books cost £18.95 plus post and packing.  To order: email CeliaDeane.Clark@btopenworld.com

The Tricorn The Life and Death of a Sixties Icon - By Celia Clark

Love it or hate it – there’s no middle ground in reactions to the Tricorn: the Brutalist, bold, multi-layered and multi-use megastructure built in Portsmouth between 1962 and 1966, and demolished in  2004.  The Tricorn features in histories of architecture.  Its  chunky imagery spawned progeny -  the Lloyds building’s exterior  staircases, the Barbican’s curving upstands  - leading ultimately to  the birth of high-tech

The Tricorn: the Life and Death
of a Sixties Icon
Celia Clark and Robert Cook
Foreword by Tom Dyckhoff

£19.99
Reviewed by Jon Wright - Twentieth Century Society Journal

As the years continue ton pass since its short-sighted destruction, Portsmouth's 'concrete casbah; gets more fondly remembered. The Tricorn: the life and death of a sixties icon, written by the building's staunchest local defenders, Celia Clark and Robert Cook, is therefore both a requiem and a warning. Exploring how it came to be built and how the subsequent tide of local and national dislike and ambivalence finally overwhelmed its ramparts, Clark and Cook leave no stone unturned. More widely, it's a timely investigation into why Portsmouth along with so many other towns in the country has so struggled to value its monumental civic architecture from the 1960s. The book is something of a compendium, a scrapbook of the building's front and back pages with all the various viewpoints allowed a voice. Structurally the book is unconventional, with fascinating and passionate passages devoted to the building's colourful history mixing with rather more prosaic architectural detail-chapter 7 is devoted to the history of the Tricorn Club. Anecdote forms a huge part of Clark's all-encompassing study, and in collecting so many fond memories, Clark has uncovered a whole stratum of the city who actually loved the building and clearly loved being there.


Chapter 6, devoted to the building's commercial operation,ends with a quote from a former trader-"l always liked the ugliness of the Tricorn, it had a certain beauty'~ The photographs are many and varied, giving added weight to the scrapbook feel. Quite stunning shots taken by Clark and other local campaigners in the building's final days, show Right and below: Portsmouth's demolished Tricorn Centre26- C20 Spring 2010 up close what a beautiful finish the building had. Colour shots of the destruction that followed therefore appear as records of vandalism on a massive scale in one shot a campaigner holds up a sign saying "we will regret it"-and so we do. This book is an unsolicited love letter to the Tricorn and an amalgamation of all the various documents, opinions, personalities and decisions that saw its rise and fa ll. Owen Luder and Rodney Gordon have their say of course, but it's the social and conservation history, rather than the architectural, which lingers in the memory. The Society continues to fight so that this does nothappen again, but one feels that the people of Portsmouth should write an open letter to the people of Gateshead, Preston or Birmingham, such is the depth of feeling the Clark has uncovered. This is a remarkable book on a remarkable building.
