Award winning American architect Rick Joy is renowned for his climate responsive and landscape sensitive work, based mostly in the desert region of Arizona.

Using a robust palette of materials, including rammed earth, hardwoods and rusted steel, Joy’s work looks as much from the earth, as sitting within it. Joy’s practice predominantly includes residential work, with Tubac House being his most celebrated. Joy’s work has been both published and exhibited widely with a group of architectural experts recently choosing a Rick Joy house as one of five most influential and inspiring homes in recent times, alongside work by Rem Koolhaas and Shigeru Ban.

Presented by Australian Architecture Association in association with Architectural Review Australia.
