Overview

Paul Morgan Architects by Maitiu Ward, Peter Bennetts

From survival pods for a climate-stressed Australia of the near future, to buildings sculpted to respond to the environment that surrounds them, the work of Paul Morgan Architects is a highly unconventional blend of science fiction, sustainability and speculation. Despite operating in a mode far from the architectural norm, however, the practice has received a slew of awards in the decade since its inception, including the Robin Boyd Award for Residential Buildings and a citation for the Zumtobel Group Award for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment. This book documents a selection of Paul Morgan Architects’ most significant public and private commissions, including its multi-award winning residential work and its more recent educational and institutional design. Critical contributions include writing by Kristin Feireiss, co-founder of the architectural forum Aedas in Berlin and a former director of the Netherlands Architecture Institute, Conrad Hamann, author and architectural historian, and Dr Vivian Mitsogianni, Associate Professor in Architecture at RMIT University. Richly illustrated with photography by Peter Bennetts as well as the practice’s own drawings and visualisations, the book provides a deep insight into both the work and the processes behind this maverick Australian architecture practice.
