Following on from this year’s Australian Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal win, acclaimed architect Peter Stutchbury will embark on a national tour from 28 July, presenting in each state and territory. Stutchbury’s receipt of the Gold Medal adds yet another accolade to his stellar collection of 47 institute awards.
Stutchbury is renowned for a thoroughly considered approach to his buildings, each a highly original, site sensitive response embodying the architect’s environmental outlook. His oeuvre of built works forms an exemplary representation of Australian residential architecture today – powerful, deliberate and inextricably belonging to our rugged and open landscape.
The award came as a result of his ‘ongoing contribution to the advancement of architecture through practice, teaching and participation in professional activities and organisations,’ Immediate Past President David Karotkin said.
The Sydney-based architect has been awarded for many of his most famous works include ‘Springwater’ (2005) and ‘Bay House’ (2003), ‘Deepwater Woolshed’ and ‘Invisible House’, all of which pay homage to the surrounding landscape and community.
The Gold Medal tour begins in Newcastle on 28 July, culminating in Sydney on 19 November with the AS Hook Address.
