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.

I became a big fan of Caruso St. John after I read this book. I admire their defiant spirit against trend of temporal showmanship. Like a sculpture piece their works carving thru context with sensitive rigor, which enhanced the quality of its surrounding without conforming.
I highly recommend it if you too are searching for a breath of fresh air in architecture.
