John Dutton is equally passionate about designing a house, a place of work, a piece of furniture or a public park. He has a unique background; he trained in world-famous firms (Morphosis, Richard Meier, Renzo Piano, Santiago Calatrava) that produce iconic buildings, but he also has a deep interest and expertise in the design of cities and neighborhoods. This varied background means he knows what it means to live and work on a daily basis in an inspiring and sustainable environment. To this end, his work emphasizes the complementary design of buildings, streets, and open spaces that together form the fabric of the places in which we live and work. His ideas of connecting architecture and urban design were published in his book, New American Urbanism: Re-Forming the Suburban Metropolis, by Skira Editore. The way we see our cities, and the way we live and work in them are absolutely connected, especially in these years of dwindling resources and environmental challenges.
