Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments

Clubs by their definition offer exclusivity. They are not global – they are placed. They are not open – they are closed. They do not offer everything – they specialise. In becoming a member, you also become special.

The image of a club is as important as the spatial layout itself; and it is the job of the architect or designer to reflect an exclusive image in the physical spaces of the club.

Club Culture features:

  • the new club class offered by airlines and the transit its members enjoy through exclusive spaces before and after boarding
  • the new members clubs of London and other major cities that have replaced the traditional ‘gentleman’s
  • the impressive technology and design behind the new breed of specialist sports clubs such as Ove Arup’s design for the International Tennis Centre in Sydney
  • the slick contemporary architecture of golf clubs tailored to the business executive such as the Yangsan Adonis Golf Club in South Korea “…like jewel boxes on a green velvet blanket…”
  • the funky underground clubs that serve the city’s nocturnal clubbers
  • and the ultimate in exclusivity that floats on the worlds waters, the new ship tailored only to those dripping in cash

This is an interesting take on Club Culture that has not before been published and will be interesting, provocative and visual.


“…takes a peek behind the closed doors of some of the most select clubs in the world – the spaces that only the very wealthy or very famous usually get to see…” (refresh, November 2003)

“…all very intriguing…” (Attitude, January 2004)

 “…Club Culture is the next best thing to joining these clubs, both new and old…” (What’s On in London, Jananuary 2004)

“…a  visual feat for armchair-nightbirds…” (Independent on Sunday, January 2004)

“…very readable, containing some insightful commentary by esteemed writers…” (FX, January 2004)

“…beautifully illustrated throughout…” (Space, February/March 2004)

“…high on gloss, the book features first-class airline lounges, the world’s best private members haunts and a selection of the finest golf clubs in the world…” (Arena, April 2004)


Clubs by their definition offer ‘exclusivity’: to be a member of a club you have to meet the selected criteria, whatever that might be. The image of a club becomes the key to how its members identify with it – be it the relaxed wholesome logos of health clubs; or the sleek aerodynamic images found in business-class airline lounges. This issue of AD sets out to examine how architects and interior designers effectively use the physical spaces of clubs to enforce images of exclusivity and collective belonging. Traditional gentlemen’s clubs are looked at alongside a new generation of sports, media, commercial and night clubs that are springing up across the world. It also features interviews with Nigel Coates and David Adjaye.
