9/10 Stock Orchard Street, colloquially known as the Straw House, is a house and an office designed by two architects for their own use. Completed in 2000, the buildings were experimental in design, execution and inhabitation, and have resisted categorization, challenging received wisdom and provoking debate, especially among architectural critics. With access to all the material records of the project, this book responds to that debate by presenting multi-faceted narratives from a wide range of writers that have been invited to reflect both positively and negatively on what the buildings represent and how they have performed. Using the buildings as the central case study, it situates them in a broader cultural context, revealing the breadth of conversations and issues engaged by architecture. Highly illustrated with original material, including the authors#xE2;#xAC;" own drawings and with specially-commissioned photographs, this book discusses theory, practice, ethics, material culture, the media, narrative, feminism, sustainability and construction, offering illuminating and sometimes surprising conclusions relevant to lay, professional and academic readers. While offering a wide ranging set of approaches and critiques of its subject, this book provides a unique insight into a building#xE2;#xAC;"s conception, construction and reception, and in turn facilitates the engagement with the issues facing architectural practice today. #xE3;#xAC;#xAC;
