This week Melbourne architect and radio host Stuart Harrison joins us on the Guest Blog

This week we are super excited to have someone a bit famous on the Guest Blog!  Stuart Harrison is a much respected Melbourne architect and co-host of Triple RRR’s extremely popular radio show ‘The Architects’.  He is also the author of ‘A place in the Sun’ (blogged here last year), published by Thames and Hudson.

Stuart’s newest book, entitled ‘Forty-six square metres of land doesn’t normally become a house’ (!!)  is out later this month, and you guessed it, it’s all about TINY homes.  The new book is once again packed full of stunning Australian and NZ homes, this time exploring how the constraints of space often result in the most innovative design solutions.  Super fab.

This week Stuart will give us a sneak peek at five of the most innovative tiny homes included in his new book!  It’s sure to be an inspiring and very space efficient week!

The good folks at Thames & Hudson have also kindly offered two copies of Stuart’s new book for two lucky readers!  Simply leave a comment on any of Stuart’s Guest Blog posts before 10.00pm Melbourne-time this Thursday to be in the running to win!  Two winners will be selected and random and announced on Friday.

Stuart Harrison’s newest book –  ‘Forty-six square metres of land doesn’t normally become a house’ published by Thames and Hudson.

    What a gorgeous book cover! Don’t suppose anyone would know the name of the typeface used here? :)

    I’m a fan of The Architects radio program and Stuart’s commentary. This book would fit snugly in our collection of house and decorating books!

    I’m an architecture student at RMIT and have sat through many of Stuart’s lectures, transferring his infectious passion for all things architecture. Also an avid listener to The Architects on 3RRR, Stuart continues to inspire and I would of course love this fine piece to be the first of many of Stuart’s books to rest, well read, within my bookcase.

    I’m an interior designer by trade, but always wanted to be an architect. Am fascinated by spacial planning and wonderful ideas. Looks like a great read.

    Whilst sitting in the library working away at my architecture assignment, I heard Stuart being interviewed on the ABC’s ByDesign program. With only 3 weeks to go before I complete my master of architecture, I’ve been feeling a little drained (and very sleep deprived)…..hearing Stuart speak about his new book was an injection of inspiration! Would love to explore this book further :)
