The Australian Institute of Architects’ 2015 Gold Medallist, Peter Stutchbury, will begin his Gold Medal Tour in Newcastle on 28 July.
Stutchbury, who also received the 2015 Wilkinson Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (New) for Light House at the recent NSW Architecture Awards, will present in each state and territory as part of the tour culminating in Sydney on 19 November with the AS Hook Address.
Announced in March, the Gold Medal is the Institute’s highest honour and was awarded to Stutchbury ‘for his ongoing contribution to the advancement of architecture through practice, teaching and participation in professional activities and organisations,’ Immediate Past President David Karotkin said.
‘In 34 years of practice, 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,’ the jury said.
Stutchbury’s most famous works include his two Robin Boyd Award for Residential Architecture winning projects, Springwater (2005) and Bay House (2003), Deepwater Woolshed and Invisible House, winner of a 2014 NSW Architecture Award for Residential Architecture.
