Under the Edge The Architecture of Peter Stutchbury Edited by Ewan McEoin 36
Peter Stutchbury’s award-winning architecture has stimulated an increasing awareness of the potential for designing with the Australian landscape and its environment. He has also enjoyed international acclaim through his success in the 2008 International Living Steel Competition for extreme climate housing in Cherepovets, Russia, and for his ‘Wall House’ in Japan for fashion designer Issey Miyake. Stutchbury carries forward the mantle of great Australian masters with whom he has worked, including Glenn Murcutt and Richard Leplastrier. Under the Edge brings his work to a wider global audience. It includes critical essays by Leplastrier and Brit Andresen, and by Ingerid Helsing Almaas, editor of Arkitektur N, the Norwegian Architectural Review. Stutchbury explains the underpinnings of his philosophy and practice in his own words. An overview of the seminal works of his early practice leads to the detailed presentation of 14 recent projects shown through texts, sketches, plans and new photography. They include his Invisible House in the Blue Mountains, which won 2014 House of the Year. The book concludes with an illustrated chronology of his entire corpus, with a section on his studio.
Includes texts by Lindsay Johnston, Brit Andresen, Richard Leplastrier, Ingerid Helsing Almaas and Peter Stutchbury.
