4.0 out of 5 stars great timeless british sensibility, 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: El Croquis 166 - Caruso St John 1993-2013 (Paperback)
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.
