Dialogues in Space: Wendell Burnette Architects

Dialogues in Space: Wendell Burnette Architects

Also included is a comprehensive essay by the celebrated architectural writer and critic Robert McCarter entitled Crafting Space: Composition and Construction in the Architecture of Wendell Burnette that examines the “thinking and making” process behind the built and unbuilt work across 15 years of practice. The different typologies of the work explores authentic human experience through provocative spatial constructions—public and private in diverse locales—that attempt to promote an expansive dialogue with our places, our environment, our communities, ourselves, and our time. Through extensive research into the ‘art of building’ – the specificity of place and locally appropriate construction systems, materials, craft, and their infinite capacity to transcend mere construction, the work strives toward an architecture that is at once functional and poetic.
