The book, recently launched at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London, celebrates the quintessential Australian design that is now so sought after internationally. The reader is taken on a journey of discovery through many exquisite buildings and, through Stutchburys own words and images the underpinnings of his philosophy and practice. Through the eyes of leading architectural photographer, Michael Nicholson, the reader is presented with a rich showcase of ideas and inspiration, together with critical essays on Stutchburys work by his good friends Richard Leplastrier and Professor Brit Andresen, and by Ingerid Helsing Almaas, Editor of Arkitektur N, the Norwegian Architectural Review.

He has also attracted international attention and acclaim through publication in respected journals, his success in the 2008 International Living Steel Competition for extreme climate housing in Cherepovets, Russia, and his recent completion of the 'Wall House in Japan for renowned fashion designer Issey Miyake.
