As a leader of a new generation of Australian architects, Peter Stutchbury has expertly demonstrated an attuned knowledge of construction, the local environment and context. His catalogue of important work, presented chronologically here, shows the architect’s engagement with the landscape, and “observes how his vision of an ideal architecture has set the course for much that should follow.” What’s also captured in this book is the variety of his work, from harbour-side houses in Sydney to the Deepwater Woolshed near Wagga Wagga, with the Archery Pavilion for the Sydney Olympic Games thrown in somewhere in between. It is an exceptional body of work that impresses today but which will inspire tomorrow.
