Peter St John of Caruso St John will be will be talking about recent projects including the Newport Street Art Gallery, designed for Damien Hirst, which was the winner of the 2016 Stirling Prize.

Peter St John is a partner at Caruso St John Architects which he co-founded with Adam Caruso in 1990. Since its inception the practice has been pursuing an architecture that is rooted in place.  It resists the thin-skinned abstraction that characterises much global architecture in favour of buildings that are perceived slowly over time and that have an emotional content.

The practice’s work is enriched by an on-going dialogue with the European city and with history – that of architecture, art, and culture more widely – traditions that bring an accumulated richness of expression to the work. Caruso St John intervenes in sites carefully, valuing the humble and everyday as well as the more celebrated products of the architectural canon. It is the context that is the starting point for generating form rather than allowing the programme to dictate the architecture.

In partnership with the Bristol & Bath branch of the RIBA.
