Invisible Piers Taylor

Architectural Review, London, March 2018

UK based Piers Taylor, participant on the very first Glenn Murcutt International Master Class held in Australia in 2001, took a sabbatical again in Australia in 2012, this time with his family, at which time he decided to bale out of conventional architectural practice and set up ‘Invisible Studio’. He sent an email to England - 

"The email came while Taylor was spending a few months in Australia with his family and with the Australian architects who had influenced him from 

an early stage in his career – Glenn Murcutt, Peter Stutchbury and Richard Leplastrier. It seemed to be a turning point for Taylor, who had grown tired of the commercial and corporate demands of the profession. ‘Most architects contacting me at that time recognised that it was a kind of plea for a change within the profession that was becoming stifled by red tape, really boring, and practice conventions that stopped us having fun with design’
