Louise Wright and Mauro Baracco are positioned between practice, research and teaching. Mauro is a practising architect and an associate professor in Architecture and Urban Design at the School of Architecture and Design of RMIT University, where he is the Deputy Dean International.
Louise is a practising architect, researcher, writer and teacher.
In their design and teaching they investigate complimentary relationships between architectural, landscape, urban and territorial fields.
Baracco+Wright have deliberately shaped their practice to remain small, yet broad. They combine their activity across practice, teaching and research to develop insights and approaches that extend the brief and outcomes.
Their built environments often take the form of simple geometries and use restrained material palettes that prioritise the spatial condition and rely heavily on their relationship with landscape.
They approach projects by thinking through a whole of world view where a building may not necessarily be the solution, placing value on the very occupation of land.
B+W 's projects and writings have been widely published in books, journals and magazines (Domus, Abitare, Casabella, A+U, l’Arca, Ottagono, Transition, Architecture Australia among others), exhibited nationally and internationally (Venice Biennale, Melbourne Biennale, Storey Hall Melbourne, Spazio Opos Milan, K-Arts Gallery Seoul among others), awarded with national and international prizes, and presented and discussed upon invitation through conferences and symposia.
