JPW have been a major part of TERROIR’s growth as a practice. The relationship stretches back to Gerard’s apprenticeship with Richard Johnson at JPW (then DCM Sydney) in the mid 1990s. Since TERROIR was established in 1999 Richard has been a regular and important confidant and advisor as we have negotiated our growth as a practice.
Richard and JPW are beacons of professionalism and ethics in the Australian industry and stand apart from their contemporaries in this regard. His partnership with Utzon on the masterplan and refurbishment of the Opera House will remain an enduring record of their commitment to city.
