Published by URO Publications, and distributed by ORO Editions. From survival pods for the climate-stressed Australia of the near future, to buildings sculpted in response 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, the practice has received a slew of accolades 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.

Overview: 

From survival pods for the climate-stressed Australia of the near future, to buildings sculpted in response 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, the practice has received a slew of accolades 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 insights include contributions from Kristin Feireiss, co-founder of the Architecture Forum Aedes 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 and RMIT University.

Richly illustrated with photography by Peter Bennetts, as well as the practice's own drawings and visualisations, the book provides deep insight into both the work and the processes behind this maverick Australian architecture practice.
