Contributor Profile

Louise Wright is a co-director of Baracco + Wright Architects (B+W). She has a PhD in architecture (RMIT University) and is also a sessional lecturer in design at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. 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 across a diverse range of locations, from 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. The work of B+W is shifting more and more towards landscape based approaches.
