Spirit of Nature 2004 Wood Architecture Award: Richard Leplastrier (Rakennustieto Oy, 2004) presents and analyses some of the key works of the Australian architect.
Richard’s architecture sits like a garment in the landscape, a pleasure to experience, concerned with personal place and a respect for the land. Invariably there exists a legible connection between a building’s ease and its integration of wooden parts. The timber assembly, systems, purpose and finishes are intuitively and energetically assessed, each relating ultimately to the function. These buildings are restful, the silence that bestows his work reminiscent of a temple where the mind is given opportunity to overtake the body and touch on thoughts beyond memory.
