Kerstin Thompson Architects: Encompassing People and Place
Publisher: Thames & Hudson Australia, 2021, Author: Leon van Schaik, Editor: Fleur Watson, ISBN: 9781760760960, Format: Hardcover, 209 x 287mm, 272pp
The first in a series of monographs that recognises the work of Australia’s most exciting architectural practices, urban designers and landscape architects.
For over twenty-five years, Kerstin Thompson has explored how architecture can respond to local conditions to positively shape lives and communities. By harnessing the potential for beauty and delight and a sensitivity to landscape, each project resonates with a spirit of generosity and community value.
Kerstin Thompson Architects: Encompassing people and place takes readers on an immersive journey into the very heart of this extraordinary body of work, and documents how, over time, the practice has shifted its focus from individual housing to larger-scale public projects created by a collaborative and talented team. With high-quality images, sketches and drawings selected from Thompson’s archive and discursive texts, this monograph provides a deep insight into not only what architects do – the buildings they make – but also why and how they design.
