NEWS: Stutchbury wins AIA 2015 Gold Medal
PROJECT: Cliff Face House
The winner of the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2015 Gold Medal, Peter Stutchbury will begin his Gold Medal Tour in Newcastle on 28 July. The Gold Medal is the Institute’s highest honour, and has been awarded to Stutchbury "for his ongoing contribution to the advancement of architecture through practice, teaching and participation in professional activities and organisations", according to Immediate Past President David Karotkin.
Stutchbury will present in each state and territory as part of the tour, which culminates in Sydney on 19 November with the AS Hook Address.
The jury noted that Stutchbury, in 34 years of practice, has mastered the art of creating architecture that speaks of the place it inhabits – buildings that are environmentally sustainable, culturally specific and locally embedded.
Stutchbury is also the recipient of the 2015 Wilkinson Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (New) for ‘Light House’ at the recent NSW Architecture Awards.
Stutchbury’s most famous works include Springwater (2005) and Bay House (2003), which won the Robin Boyd Award for Residential Architecture; Deepwater Woolshed; and Invisible House, winner of the 2014 NSW Architecture Award for Residential Architecture.
