Regular price $64

Shim-Sutcliffe’s masterful work at Point William intertwines landscape and architecture with ancient rock and water reshaping and reimagining a site on the Canadian Shield over two decades. Found conditions and new buildings are interwoven and choreographed to create a rich spatial experience moving between inside and out.

Kenneth Frampton provides an insightful introduction with selected images and his own sketches framing a way of seeing Point William for the reader. Michael Webb’s provocative interview with Brigitte Shim and Howard Sutcliffe describes their evolving vision for Point William and their two-decade journey towards its realization.

Acclaimed photographers Ed Burtynsky, James Dow and Scott Norsworthy contribute through their powerful images capturing the spirit of Point William thorough the seasons and over time.

Brigitte Shim and Howard Sutcliffe established their design practice Shim-Sutcliffe enabling them to intertwine light, water and landscape in exploratory and innovative ways. Shim-Sutcliffe’s built work addresses the integration and interrelated scales of architecture, landscape, furniture and fittings.
