Kerstin Thompson Architects: Encompassing people & place is the first major monograph on this critically acclaimed architecture practice. It re-thinks the series-of-projects monograph model and dives much deeper into the practice, unearthing insights about working and thinking, rather than just focussing on the finished work. This approach was provoked and made possible by the structural approach to the book design, dispersing the main essay throughout the book, and making the practice work responsively to the essay, rather than separating the essay at the front. The design is resolved with sympathetic affection for Kerstin Thompson’s work, mixing pragmatic systems with attention to fine details.
