Under The Edge: The Architecture of Peter Stutchbury.

Peter Stutchbury seems to be the man of the moment, with a couple of books published in the last six months about the innovative architect. This one, however, benefits from critical essays by close personal and professional associates of Stutchbury, such as Richard Leplastrier, Professor Brit Andresen and Ingerid Helsing Almaas, editor of Norway’s Arkitektur N. Stutchbury himself reflects on his work, explaining his philosophies and what underpins his oeuvre. Some of the projects included – such as the Hangar Flying Museum in the Hunter Valley – have never been published, and come complete with sketches, plans and photography.
