Book Talk: Barry Sampson: Teaching + Practice

Barry Sampson Teaching + Practice celebrates the life and work of notable architect Barry Sampson, who passed away in December 2020. Barry was a respected teacher and an inspiration to so many. This book is an initiative by colleagues of Barry Sampson documenting his significant contribution to architectural practice and the education of architects. The publication addresses fundamental questions of practice posed by Barry Sampson, documents three key architectural projects and highlights his diverse roles in architecture: teacher, practitioner, mentor, advocate, builder, client and environmentalist.

During this book launch event, the editors share highlights, contributors each discuss a key image in the book, and former thesis students articulate his impact on their architectural trajectory.
