This book is an architectural autobiography full of wisdom. 'Life often conspires against our best intentions', Tuomey muses, 'and frustrations surrounds us in our work, but a lived-in building, loved in use, in turn feel useful'.

Tuomey proceeds to discuss with elegant brevity some of his practice's buildings, whose precise description imbues them with archetypal and poignant qualities that makes them memorable, like short poems. - Architectural Research Quarterly

John Tuomey: Architecture, Craft and Culture (Hardback)

This beautiful book, concerning both material culture and the history of ideas in architecture, recalls the pensive meditations of Alvar Aalto, Peter Zumthor and Alvaro Siza, similar architect-teachers to whom Tuomey refers.
