Description This month’s issue focuses on houses, and includes numerous projects that demonstrate both the conceptual flexibility and practical limitations inherent in their design. The cover shows one such project: Melbourne-based Jackson Clements Burrows have built a contemporary glass structure over which a photograph of a vernacular house is projected, playing on the intersection of context and modernity. Inside, Caroline Roux interviews architect John Winter on championing residential modernism in the United Kingdom as well as studying under architecture giants including Mies and Louis Kahn. Kate Goodwin reveals further intergenerational influences of past masters in presenting this year’s finalists in the inaugural World Architecture News House of the Year award, for which she was a judge. In addition, two very different projects in the United Kingdom relate past typologies with modern approaches. Jamie Fobert Architects’ expansion of an 18th century Irish farmhouse transforms the wild spirit of the site into a modern vocabulary of form and material, reports Tim Ronalds, while Vicky Richardson visits Toh Shimazaki’s thoughtful and spatially-complex Open and Shut House—a modern-day manor. Also, stepping out of the UK, we have included a special supplement on Austrian design, edited by our own Peter Kelly.
