Publisher's description; The late architect Kerry Hill designed buildings that whisper rather than scream. This beautifully illustrated book brings together a corpus of works from 1992 to the present, with an emphasis on the actively ongoing practices, recently completed works, including the celebrated Aman hotels and resorts in Tokyo, Kyoto, and outside Shanghai, as well as important large-scale buildings in Hill's hometown, Perth. Kerry Hill was one of the masters of twentieth-century architecture,consistently designing restrained, cleverly conceived buildings that often blurred the boundaries of defined space with permeable screened walls surrounded by lush landscapes. His practice's sensitivity to local materials and construction is renowned, resulting in architecture with a lightness of touch that sits perfectly in its environment. With recent projects such as the Amanyangyun hotel in China, the practice has explored restoration, moving ancient trees and houses 435 miles to be meticulously reassembled and updated with modern-day touches, creating a series of historic villas set in bamboo groves. The Aman Kyoto resort, meanwhile, reimagined a forest landscape initially slated as the garden for a textile museum as the setting for a twenty-six suite contemporary ryokan, or traditional Japanese inn. Documenting in detail more than fifty projects across Australia and Asia, this is a comprehensive monograph of one of the most refined and respected architects of his generation.
