Unfinished and Far Far Away, The Architecture of Irving Smith Architects
|Author||Aaron Betsky ed.|
Irving Smith Architects builds with the land, not on it. The practice’s projects open up, condense, focus, and interpret both the natural and human-made settings of their home base of New Zealand, a land far, far away. Edited by Aaron Betsky, the volume traces the architects’ approach of participating with existing landscapes before generating new contexts. Ten projects across a range of scales, typologies, and landscapes show how they articulate wood an other local materials in their work. Ten essays by architects, critics, and educators further a discussion on global peripheries and how architecture benefits from the continued study and interpretation of contexts.
