Architects on Dwelling

Edited by Christopher Platt

When designing any kind of dwelling, architects draw on both their imagination and expertise as well as their own experiences as inhabitants of such structures. In this book, eight architects explore how the places we inhabit are designed and how those places in turn inform the manner in which we live. Focusing on aspects of their own built work, Stephen Hoey, Henry McKeown and Ian Alexander, James Mitchell, Stacey Philips, Christopher Platt, Adrian Stewart and Miranda Webster explain why they design the way they do. Dick van Gameren, Simon Henley and Graeme Hutton - distinguished experts and themselves architect-educators - place the featured work within an international context and provide insightful commentary about contemporary design approaches for residential architecture.

Architects on Dwelling reminds us how profoundly the place we live in matters to our well-being, and highlights the social responsibility architects have in creating such places of dwelling and shelter.
