Gabriel Poole – Space in which the soul can play (ed. Bruce Walker; Visionary Press, 1998) presents selected buildings by the Australian architect.
Born at Ipswich in 1934, Gabriel Poole’s life experiences have been predominantly in South East Queensland. After spending his early adult life as a jackaroo near Rockhampton, he moved back to Brisbane and studied architecture at the Brisbane Technical College whilst working with Robin Gibson.
Returning from overseas experience, he established an architectural practice in Brisbane before moving to the Buderim/Mooloolaba area and later to Noosa where has remained ever since.
Since 1982 Poole’s architecture has been a continuous development of domestic architecture for sub-tropical climates. Experimenting with steel and prefabrication, Poole has produced delightful houses of sensitive design which are empathetic to both the environment and to the inhabitants. Recent works have included some heavyweight construction et simultaneously he has continued to pursue his experimentation with lightweight architecture. His system building in the Capricorn 151 Series, designed for the mass market, exemplify this passion.
