Book of the Moment

As Built is a monograph on the London studio Caruso St. John Architects, published by a+t ediciones. a+t publishes some damn fine - but pricey - magazines twice a year.

Although I've featured St. John's work on my weekly page, I'm not familiar with much of his work, though I feel I should be. It has a quiet appeal, a certain calm that's refreshing these days.

As the editors put it well enough, the studio "has carried out a series of projects that is characterized by coherence, sobriety, and a search for emotion through built reality."

  1. Caruso St John is in fact Peter Caruso and Colin St John, not any single person.

    The pair of them used to teach at my school, London Metropolitan.
