  • About Richard Weston

    Richard Weston

    After many years as a full-time university teacher, Richard Weston now divides his time between his Studio and work as Professor of Architecture at Cardiff University. He has won prizes in national competitions for architecture, landscape design and public art, and exhibited on several occasions in the Summer Exhibition of the Royal Academy of Arts. Following the competitive ‘Best of British Open Design Call’ he now supplies Liberty with exclusive, widely acclaimed scarf collections printed using his database of natural images.
    A well known author on architecture, Richard’s dozen books include Modernism, winner of the International Book Award of the American Institute of Architects; Alvar Aalto, winner of the Sir Banister Fletcher Prize; and what was described in Blueprint as possibly the finest monograph ever produced about an architect, on the work of Jørn Utzon, architect of Sydney Opera House.

… a gorgeous, intimate monograph that overflows with images, anecdotes, … and Weston writes unashamedly out of love for Utzon’s architecture, and the author’s enthusiasm for it is infectious.

Diana Lind, Architectural Record

… beautifully written, elegantly designed and impeccably produced.

David Jenkins, Project Director Foster and Partners

… and for architecture schools throughout the world, it is vital to have this book always available on the shelf.

a+u, Minouro Takeyama

… if You only buy one architecture book this year, then succumb to Utzon …

Prospect, Mark Cousins

… ought to be in every library of architecture and can be read in at least four ways. As a picture book. As a reference work. As a primer. And then not least it can be read as pure and simple infectious and life-asserting inspiration.

Tegl, Johan Fogh, Royal Inspector of Buildings
