2015 Gold Medal Tour- Peter Stutchbury
At the 2015 Australian Achievement in Architecture Awards, Peter Stutchbury was announced as the 2015 Gold Medallist.
In thirty-four years of practice, Peter Stutchbury has mastered the art of creating architecture that speaks of the place it inhabits – buildings that are environmentally sustainable, culturally specific and locally embedded. Peter’s buildings also exhibit deft use of simple, readily available materials to produce sophisticated details that celebrate the intrinsic qualities of locally sourced materials and trades. What is most remarkable about his work is the clarity of his response to program and environment, instantly accessible to all who see and experience his buildings.
Peter Stutchbury’s standing in the profession is evident in the calibre of colleagues who count him as a cherished friend and who are active advocates of his contribution to architecture in Australia and internationally. Of particular relevance are the past and present employees who have been nurtured in the studio of Peter Stutchbury Architecture and count Peter as a valued mentor.
Committed to advancing Australian architecture through practice, teaching and participation in broad-based professional activities and organizations, including the Australian Institute of Architects, Peter Stutchbury is also a founding member of the Australian Architecture Association and a founding director of the Architecture Foundation Australia.
For his contribution to the advancement of architecture, Peter Stutchbury is a worthy recipient of the 2015 Gold Medal. - David Karotkin (Jury Chair)
