It has been called the ‘Total Immersion’ Summer School because, for a week, you live, eat, sleep, walk, talk, architecture in the superb landscape of the Kur-ing-gai National Park overlooking beautiful Pittwater north of Sydney, where both ‘masters’ Richard Leplastrier and Peter Stutchbury live and work, and ’round the corner’ from the Hawkesbury River, which we visit on a ferry cruise, and the boat only access to the home of Lindsay Johnston.
Held since 2005, the annual event has attracted hundreds of architecture students and recent graduates from all over Australia and New Zealand, PNG, South Africa and as far afield as Bangladesh, China, UK, Ireland, Denmark, Argentina, India.
Get away from the computer and the lecture room and get out and experience the landscape, learn to see again with the eye and the hand-drawing and be inspired by these architects and great teachers, visit some of their extraordinary houses and the offices of Peter Stutchbury in Newport.
What we hear is that this week is an essential antidote to architecture school or ‘work’, and can re-invigorate your passion for architecture.
