The first volume of a collected works, this book covers 15 years of Caruso St John. Following a thematic course shaped around key phases and aspects of their thinking, this extensive volume offers a detailed reflection on the practice’s activities between 1990 and 2005. Through a chorus of voices including critics, clients, and artists, it narrates their early emergence and development through to the international recognition which came with projects such as Nottingham Contemporary, The New Art Gallery Walsall, and the Brick House, with the latter two both being shortlisted for the Stirling Prize. Detailed accounts of early projects and competition entries, with unseen drawings and new commentaries by Adam Caruso and Peter St John, are presented here accompanied and contextualised by inventories of references from across architecture and contemporary art, together with new and archival texts capturing each project’s formation and reception.
