A Laboratory for Living shares Shim-Sutcliffe’s significant work at Point William intertwines landscape and architecture with ancient rock and water reshaping and reimagining a site on the Canadian Shield for over two decades. The project is a laboratory for experimentation at many scales of design including the landscape, built form, furniture, lighting and hardware shared in this book through sketches, model photos and photographs. Kenneth Frampton provides an insightful introduction with his own selected sketches framing a way of seeing Point William for the reader. Michael Webb’s provocative interview with Brigitte Shim and Howard Sutcliffe describes the evolution of the site. Immersive spaces have been captured by three remarkable photographers Ed Burtynsky, James Dow and Scott Norsworthy.
