On the anniversary of two decades of TERROIR, we have published the first two in a continuing series of books on the ideas underpinning the practice. The first in the series is titled "Instruments".
TERROIR understand their projects as "instruments" in the way that respond to and reorganise context. This strategy is central to TERROIR's interest in place, and a focus on the instrument in the first instance leads to many of the innovations in program, organisation and form that have distinguished the work over the past twenty years.
Publisher Andrew Mackenzie (URO) writes that the ambition behind the book series is to "fundamentally recast the relationship between publication, building and architecture, retooling what an architectural publication can do."
The books are available from URO: https://www.uropublications.com/products/terroir-instruments
