In this talk, presented as part of the BrickWorks DoubleTALK series, Louise Wright, of B+W, responds to the invitation from Stephen Varady to discuss ‘How they make their work’ and ‘The idea of generosity’. 

Louise guides us through their story with emphasis on some guiding principles (studies of Robin Boyd), exemplar public works (2018 Venice Biennale) and intimate case studies, including their own Garden House, which signified a shift in their architecture.

    Mauro Baracco and Louise Wright

    B+W believe in a wide role for architectural thinking beyond the individual building. All projects are approached with a particular and equal attention to the parts and the whole, to individual project conditions and to the discourse of Architecture.

    Working over a diverse range of locations from conglomerate inner urban areas to sensitive rural and coastal environments, they explore how to make architecture that is generous, opportunistic and connected to a local physical environment as well as the non physical mixed conditions of each context. They consider the potential of even very small interventions over a large scale.

    They approach projects by thinking through a whole of world view where a building may not necessarily be the solution, placing value on the very occupation of land.
Their built environments often  take on simple geometries and restrained material palettes that prioritise the spatial condition and rely on their relationship with landscape.

    They integrate academic and practice based research, applied over a range of disciplines that effect the built environment to find meaningful ways that architectural design can contribute.
