The BOLLES+WILSON monograph documents evolutionary snapshots from projects such as the Suzuki House in Tokyo or the BEIC Library in Milan alongside characteristic insights into Peter Wilson’s sketchbooks – minute, highly-detailed and atmospheric records of places, readings and architectural reference – the complex and cumulative background to BOLLES+WILSON’s long-term and much published phenomenological ‘take’ on architecture.

The book complements the recent monograph ‘A Handful of Productive Paradigms’ (2009) with procedural insights, interviews and statements on the status of hand drawings in the digital age.

This extensive work of 296 pages and ca. 900 images chronicles not only the wide range of projects by the Münster based architects over the last 8 years but also includes an accompanying theoretical and cultural discourse which underpins their international reputation. For BOLLES+WILSON architecture is a symbiosis of the conceptual and the pragmatic, of the everyday and the exceptional, of the scales of Masterplans and of details, of urban context and choreographed interiors, of emotion and ‘ratio’. Phenomenological perception and narrative structures characterise the arresting form language of their buildings, buildings which as this expansive monograph demonstrates remain always mindful of use and comfort. The result is a rich, dense and elegant book with numerous sketches, plans and profound photographs by Christian Richters.

Established in London in 1980 BOLLES+WILSON have been based in Germany since 1989 with projects in Australia, Albania, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
