Description

This Building Likes Me offers an engaging account of the recent work of one of Australia's most significant architectural practices, John Wardle Architects (JWA). They are fascinated by those who experience their buildings and spaces - by those who live or work in them, or simply walk past. These are the people the buildings like!

This monograph captures the award-winning practice's commitment to people, cities and places, the collaborations with makers, builders and artists, and their continual inventive exploration of scale, site, landscape and narratives of memory. It presents 36 recent buildings and projects in pairs, and features photographs, drawings and images of JWA's distinctive models. Alongside the projects are short critical essays and images of life within the practice. The result is a compelling insight into contemporary architectural processes, preoccupations and projects.
