Product Description

From the Inside Flap

This issue examines the range of projects embarked upon by Adam Caruso and Peter St John over the past two decades, a spectrum that reveals the singularities in their work, showing how the architects take advantage of unique opportunities to accomplish something different in each circumstance. Besides an extensive interview with Caruso St John and text by Pier Vittorio Aureli, more than twenty defining works are highlighted in detail through numerous texts, drawings and photographs, among them New Art Gallery Walsall, Basel Ozeanium, Nottingham Contemporary, Bremer Landesbank and the V&A Museum of Childhood.

Although on the cover you see the trendiness of Olgiatti's influence these guys produce very british anti-commercial architecture with the most sensitive interventions in untouchable icons like the John Soane museum. Some of their formerly theoretic projects like the brick house, which I had only seen in drawings, looks not as good when built. But their sensitive, sensible way of approaching a big expanse of paving in Sweden and the updated pattern of a floor in a classical building shows they focus on the context updating it conscious of the past. Their asserted anti commercialism is sometimes exaggerated and self excusing but the general output is amazingly british and good.

Rebellion Thru Context 28 May 2015

I became a big fan of Caruso St. John after I read this book. They are defiant against the temporal showmanship, and their weapon is context. Their design harmoniously coexist with existing and surrounding, but not conforming. Their works stand out thru sensitive articulations.
I highly recommend it if you too are searching for a breath of fresh air in architecture.
